The Order of Kolios is the highest order of chivalry in the Principality of Kolios within the Empire of Agber. The intention of the Order is to honor those who have provided a service to Kolios. It was created on 20 September 1995 as the lower of two orders in what was then the Kingdom of Kolios.

When Kolios became a principality within the Empire of Agber in 1998, the Sanctified Order of the Crucifix was designated as an order of the Empire. This move left the Order of Kolios as the only order exclusive to the Principality, making it the highest order, by default. When the Sanctified Order of the Crucifix was returned to Kolios in 2020, the Order of Kolios retained its position as the highest honor.

Despite being one of the two oldest orders within the Empire, the Order of Kolios is rarely awarded, having last been bestowed on a new member in 2014.

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

  • Knight/Dame which is denoted by the wear of a medallion suspended from a green ribbon in a tri-fold (sometimes called Windsor) style.
  • Knight/Dame Commander which is denoted by the wear of a medallion of the order affixed to a green necklet. Dames Commander may elect to wear the medallion attached to a green bow.
  • Knight/Dame Grand Cross which is denoted by the wear of the star of the order and a green sash, worn from the right shoulder to the left hip.

Sovereign of the Order

The current Sovereign and font of honor for the order is Empress Arlene, as the reigning monarch of Kolios. While her current rank of Dame Grand Cross officially is equal in precedence with others who hold that rank, her status as Member Ex-Officio gives her functional precedence within the order.
