    I'm trying to find a translation of a family motto "arma nobilitant genus" from 1741. Can anyone help? Thank you

    High Navarre
    Arms/Weapons make a family famous.

    Famous or noble. Dictionaries give both meanings.

    Thank you very much, this was a motto for a Garter King of Arms, who was responsible for granting arms to noblemen in the 1700's so the translation makes sense.
