The Order of Ottokar was created in 2016 by Prince Weslley of Agram, Ban of Horvatia, named after King Ottokar II of Bohemia and also to celebrate the creation of the Kingdom and the signing of the Karno-Ruthenian Compromise of 2016. The motto of the order is Qui Ludere Cum Spinis Scabere, Latin for Who stirs with thorns, is scratched.

The Ban of Horvatia is, while in office, the Grand Master of the Order and the Hereditary Prince of Agram is the Chancellor of the Order. Only the Ban may grant, promote or revoke the membership.

On 22 April 2020, the Imperial House of Karnia-Ruthenia transferred the sovereignity of the order to the Princely Family of Sildavia. Under the terms of this arrangement, the Order would be again reverted to Karno-Ruthenian Monarchy if the terms of the transfer were violated. The orders granted during the Karno-Ruthenian period will be maintained.
