I've recreated the Montague and Capulet crests for my Romeo + Juliet weapons project, but the reference I've got is kinda crappy :unsure

The Capulet Crest has a four word motto, top seems to be 'Dios' - God in Spanish. Can't get a good cap of the bottom, or make out the left and right.

Anyone got any thoughts?

I can't make out the others, but the right side (as you look at it) appears to say "Fuerna" which, using Google translate, doesn't mean anything. However, Fuerza = Force.

And I also read the top as "Dios." And you are correct, that does mean "God."

Really doesn't help...but hey, I tried. ;)

If the lower left says "Virtud" it would be "virtue."

So the three words would be God, Virtue, Strength.

You said a 4 word motto in your original post, but I don't see a fourth word anywhere.

It should be Italian or Latin. As the play's meant to be set in Italy.

If I had to guess, maybe the right word could be fuersa or fuerza. Which translates to "strong" in spanish.

I agree. It's interesting to note that the one word that is easy to discern (Dios) does not translate into anything on several translation sites from Latin or Italian. It does, however, translate to "God" on all of the ones I have tried. Go figure. :facepalm

I think God, Virtue, Strength is promising...

The movie was set in Verona Beach, a kind of fictional Miami, the male Capulets are all hispanic looking, plus the 'Dios' thing made me incline to Spanish.

There is a fourth word, will try and find another cap from the lift door. The complete crest looks like this:

You're more than likely right about the Spanish although the bottom word does look like Family. or could be Familia I suppose.

at left = Virtud
at right = Fuerza
at top = Dios
bottom part is not clear, can be Honor or Honra, or maybe something different


they are in Spanish, not Latin (Why?)

maybe with a better pic, I can help more

FWIW :

R & J Production Notes

"Two behemoth mirrors, encased in ornate golden frames, faced the staircase, and elaborate, dark oil paintings, depicting biblical scenes, dotted the scarlet walls. The Capulet herald, a baroque, stylized cat bearing the words "virtue," "honor," "Dios" and "fuerza," was inlaid into the floor."

In keeping with Spanish and the last letters from that screencap, Honra would be it, which isn't exactly honor, but self-respect / dignity / pride.

Honra gives the sense of the individual qualities of honor.

that is perfect, just, is not virtue, its "Virtud"
