The various examples of
Losada and Lousada heraldry shown here bear no
apparent relation to the
lizards and stone slabs of the old Spanish
de Losada nobility. While the
the 5 Lousada Dukes are
similar to the Duque's arms they are not the same.
This situation arose because Emanuel
Baruh Lousada #87 obtained his arms
in 1777 ie before the Duque died in 1783 and he was probably
required to distinguish his arms from
those of the Duque; this of course was
the opposite of what the Dukes wanted in 1848 when there was no Duque de Losada!
