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.

Origin

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.

Precedence and privileges

Members of all rankings of this order are assigned positions in the order of precedence, ranking above all others members of equal rankings of whichever orders except for the higher Order of the Silver Cat. Consorts, childs and childs-in-law also feature on the order of precedence; relatives of members, however, are not assigned any special precedence. Generally, individuals can derive precedence from their parents or consorts as long as the recipient lives.

When an individual is entitled to use multiple post-nominal letters, the ones of the order (GCSA for Grand Crosses; COSA for Commanders; OSA for Officials; CSA for knights; and DSA for dames) takes precedence. All recipients may encircle their arms with the circlet of the order.
