Alsleben Coat of Arms

Shield Argent, three eels involute Gules ordered 2:1.
Meaning:
The County of Alsleben had been under direct imperial rule (Reichsunmittelbarkeit) in the early Medieval. The kin died out in 1126 and the county became a dominion of the Archbishopric of Magdeburg in 1128. Alsleben gained city rights probably in the 12th century, at least since 1479. In 1438 the city was pawned to the Krosigk kin. The kin became a vassal of the archbishopric in 1479. In 1680 the city became a dominion of the Electorate of Brandenburg and the archbishopric was transformed into a duchy. In 1747 the Krosigk kin sold the county to the Princes of Anhalt-Dessau as private owners under the sovereignty of Brandenburg-Prussia.
From 1500 until 1734 there is evidence that the arms displayed three red roses ordered 2:1. Hermann Größler claimed in "Mansfelder Blätter" 1902, p.1953 that the arms are based on a city seal from 1734. It displayed on a baroque style shield three black eels involute in a red shield. He also claimed that the eels had been actually red roses, taken from the family arms of the Lords of Alsleben, which displayed red roses on a white shield. This pattern also appeared on local coins. An other source claims that the city arms had been taken from those of the last Count Heinrich of Alsleben, who died in 1126.
