The coat of arms of Emperor Charles VI on the attic of the Imperial Chancellery Wing of the Vienna Hofburg
In this version of the imperial arms the double-headed eagle bears an escutcheon with the Austrian ‘Bindenschild’ and the triple-turreted castle of Castile, intended to affirm the claim to the Spanish inheritance that Charles had never relinquished.
