Coat of Arms of the Ataíde family, Counts of Atouguia.

Count of Atouguia (in Portuguese Conde de Atouguia) was a Portuguese title of nobility created by a royal decree, dated from 17 December 1448, by King Afonso V of Portugal, and granted to D. Álvaro Gonçalves de Ataíde.

This title became extinct due to the 11th Count involvement in the Távora affair; the plot was discovered, the count was executed and his House and estates were confiscated.
