The three lions are the emblem of England. William the Conqueror used two lions on a red background as his coat of arms and brought this symbol to the English throne. It was King Henry II who first used three lions on a red background, adding a lion to William the Conqueror's two when he married Eleanor of Aquitaine, probably to represent his marriage into that family. The three lions shield can be seen today on the England football team kit and is recognized around the world.
