Court of Chivalry

The Court of Chivalry is an ancient English civil court[?] under the jurisdiction of the Earl Marshall of England, the Duke of Norfolk, that judges cases regarding heraldry.

The court was last convened in 1954, in a case in which a theatre (the Manchester Palace of Varieties) was using the arms of the City of Manchester both inside the theatre and on its seal; the city had requested that the theatre cease the usage, and had met with refusal. The court ruled in favour of the City of Manchester.
