The Latitudian Grand Order of Excellence is an order of chivalry awarded by the Republic of Latitudia. It was founded together with several other awards and decorations on 17 November 2015 by REG/2015:14. The title is awarded to a domestic or foreign dignitary for showing splendor and vigor within their own state or empire, as well as internationally on a macro- or micronational level. This honour can be awarded to any person inside or outside a micronation, by the ruling monarch of Latitudia. The grades including Royal can only be awarded royalty. Upon recieving and accepting an award the subject should proudly and gracefully display it in all its splendor in at least micronational context. The award and title can be revoked at any time only by the current ruling monarch of Latitudia, or a deputy.

As only one of the grades has a maximum quota, this order is continously being awarded.

Grades

There are five grades in the Latitudian Order, the Royal Supreme Knight/Dame Protector is chosen as the official patron of the order, and is also only awarded to the current ruling monarch. There is no limit of recipients for the remaining four grades, but a fair balance between them is desireable. If presented with a ribbon, medal or similar it should be worn at every official social event should it be appropriate.

Styles

Recipients of all five grades are referred to as Sir/Dame, unless they have a senior or royal title. They may call themselves according their grade, a Knight or Dame at their own discretion. Postnominals may be shown with or without points (full stops); e.g. K.O.E. or KOE, but preferrably without. When several postnominals are present, if possible put the highest or most senior award first. Postnominals as abbreviations are never used verbally, only in written text.

  • Dame Mary Smith RSDP/RSDOE/SDOE/RDOE/DOE

Spouses

A spouse to a Knight/Dame may or may not choose to be addressed Mr/Lady Smith, given that they share the surname with the recipient. If chosen, the formal address is Sir John and Lady Mary Smith and Dame Mary and Mr John Smith. If chosen not to, the formal address is Sir John and Mrs Smith and Dame Mary and Mr Smith. If they don't share the same surname, the style will instead be Sir John Smith and Lady Mary Grant, etc. In Swedish, when used, the address would be Herr och fru Smith regardless of stature. Any royal or foreign styles will have precedence.
