Origin of last name Borges, country of origin: Portugal
Nobility: Lords - Knights
Heraldrys of family: Borges
Ancient and noble Portuguese family, of clear and ancestral virtue, that has spread, during the centuries, all over the world, especially in Brazil. According to what has been handed down, the founder of the family is a Rodrigo Anes, Portuguese knight of Santarém, who made famous in France serving King Philip Augustus II, who sent him to defend the city of Bourges. His achievement was so heroic that he was called the Knight of Bourges. But when he returned home, settling in Torre de Moncorvo, the name was made more Portuguese, becoming Borges. His son, João Rodrigues Borges was Lord... To be continuedof Honras de Calvos and Ourilhe and married D. Catarina Lopes, Lady of the Village of Álvaro. One of their great-grandson, João Gonçalves Borges, Alcaide-Mor de Santarém and Lord of Alva and other feuds was confirmed noble by D. Alfonso V, in the year 1489. Likewise, Diogo Gonçalves Borges, father of Borges Gomes, and Ruy Borges, chamberlain of King D. Duarte and Lord of Carvalhaes and Verdemilho. From the analysis of colours and symbols of the coat of arms we can have more information about the family virtues. The tincture red ("gules") is the symbol of strength, power but also fervent love for God and neighbor; the Lion, the most noble figure of the blazon, when gold in the red shield shows generosity to the benefits received and magnanimity in great and noble soul; the tincture azure symbolizes water, the continuity of life, it is a colour of nobility, beauty, chastity and fidelity; the semy-de-lis or, that represents the hope, the expectation of the good, the purity, the purity of the soul, the highest repute, the benign prince and upright judge, is a memory of the exploit completed in France by the founder. Family names so old, without any doubt honour not only families but also the cities that welcomed them; seems to be, in fact, very worthy the living members of this family which, with much decorum, carry this noble surname, which has had several illustrious members.
