The Order of Cordova is an order of chivalry within the Empire of Agber and the highest order of the Enclave de Cordova. The intention of the Order is to honor those who have provided a service to the Enclave. It was created on 27 August 2002 as the first order of the newly established Codova.

As the Order of Cordova is considered a "National Order," it is funded by the Empire. The current font of honor for the order is Empress Arlene.

There are three classes of the Order, each with their own unique regalia:

  • Knight/Dame Grand Cross which is denoted by the wear of the star of the order and a red and yellow sash, worn from the right shoulder to the left hip.
  • Knight/Dame Commander which is denoted by the wear of a medallion of the order affixed to a red and yellow necklet. Dames Commander may elect to wear the medallion attached to a red and yellow bow.
  • Knight/Dame which is denoted by the wear of a medallion suspended from a red and yellow drape ribbon.

While Baron Gilbert was the first font of honor for the order, this only lasted for a little over a year, until the Empire restructured its honors and created the designation of "National Order," which applied to the Order of Cordova. At that time, Empress Arlene became the font of honor.

During the Empire's Second Age, Empress Arlene had a rather contentious relationship with Baronesa Nicolette and her successor, Baron Peter. As a result, she appointed new provincial heads to the rank of Knight or Dame, but refused to elevate any memberships to a higher rank.
