Ribbon of the Order
The Order of the Blue Blood (Portuguese: Ordem do Sangue Azul) is a national and dynastic order of knighthood of the Kingdom of Ebenthal exclusively awarded to royalty at the monarch's pleasure. Its current Grand Master is King Arthur II.
The order was established in 2016 as a national order of the Kingdom of Roschfallen and in December 2020 its sovereignity and mastership was handed over to the Clan Brum and the order was attached to the national pantheon of orders and awards of Ebenthal.
The Order of the Blue Blood was founded in 26 January 2016 by King Arthur I of Roschfallen as national order, loosely based in the Order of the Garter, with the purpose to award royal friends. In October 2020 the former King of Roschfallen and current King of Ebenthal, Arthur II, thought of revive the order under his rule, sought King Ferdinad I of Roschfallen and proposed to him an accord by which the Roschfallenian State would hand over the order to the Clan Brum, in name of the Ebenthali State. With the order virtually inactive, the Roschfallenian monarch agreed and signed the Treaty of the Blue Blood.
In 4 December 2020 the Order of the Blue Blood officialy became a dynastic order and part of the Ebenthali pantheon of awards. Those who have been previously appointed as members of the order by the Roschfallenian monarch got their positions reviewed and were mostly kept as members.
