The Order of the Crown Princess (known as the Order of the Crown Prince when the Heir to the Throne is male) is an order of chivalry bestowed by the Heir to the Throne of the Empire of Austenasia. Founded on 31 January 2009 by Act 56 (Order of Chivalry), it is the lowest Austenasian order of chivalry in terms of precedence, and unique in that it is not bestowed by the Monarch.

Grades

There are four grades in the Order of the Crown Princess, and the holders of all but the last may legally be referred to as knights. There may only ever be one Supreme Companion at a time, as that particular grade was initially created with the intention of being granted to the consort of the Heir to the Throne; however, so far the position has only ever been bestowed upon close friends of the Heir.

There were originally five grades, with Knight/Dame Companion of the Crown Prince (KCCP/DCCP) being between Knight/Dame Protector and Knight/Dame in terms of precedence. However, this grade was abolished by Act 81 on 30 May 2009; it had only ever had one recipient, who had voluntarily relinquished it a mere month after recieving it at the Order's founding (see below).

  • Supreme Companion of the Heir
