The Order of the Ebony Crown (Portuguese: Ordem da Coroa de Ébano), formerly Order of the Black Crown, is a national order of the Kingdom of Ebenthal, granted at the monarch's pleasure usually in recognition of a national contribution, for public service or for civic merit. It was established on 20 August 2021 to substitute the former Order of Dagon with a symbology inherent to the country as a way of properly rewarding those who rendered service to it or had actions recognized as valuable.

As a national order, the Prime Minister of Ebenthal is its chancellor, appointing persons potentially eligible to be appointed members by the King of Ebenthal, Grand Master of the Order, which also includes supernumerary knights and ladies such as members of the Royal Family. The order is part of national pantheon of orders and awards of Ebenthal.



When Arthur II became King of Ebenthal in 2019, in his campaign to adapt the country to his image to symbolize a new era, he abolished the Order of the Mountain Star, created in 2014. by King Arthur I, and instituted the Order of Dagon, inspired by the Esoteric Order of Dagon of H.P. Lovecraft's cosmic horror tales'. The Order of Dagon, however, has been criticized for its macabre, particular roots, disconnected from the country's culture and for its frequent association with the Esoteric Order of Dagon founded in real life, of the same inspiration, but which nevertheless claims to practice black magic and who believes that Lovecraft was a prophet of evil gods. Knowing the criticism, Arthur decided for its abolition, but postponed this act due to doubts about what to do with the members who had been appointed to the order.

At the beginning of August 2021 Arthur II adopted as a solution to the question of what to do with the members of the Order of Dagon the creation of a new national order and the immediate incorporation of the members of the Order of Dagon as members of this new order. However, the structure and aesthetics of this order still needed to be defined. Afraid that this would take longer than necessary, Arthur decided to formally create the order as quickly as possible by royal decree and, between the creation of the decree and its entry into force, work on forming the order.


After much delay, on 17 August 2021, through Royal Decree No. 5/2021, King Arthur II extinguished the Order of Dagon and formalized the creation of the Order of the Black Crown, which was officially founded when the decree took effect three days later. During these three days the government worked on creating the design of the order which was named after the black crancelin present in the coat of arms of Ebenthal and often used as national representation symbol. In the act of creating the order, Arthur appointed 17 members who had been selected by him in conjunction with his Prime Minister, Prince Fernando of Schwarzberg, including members of the extinct Order of Dagon.

In 3 July 2022, amidst a reformation of the pantheon of honours, the Order of the Black Crown was renamed Order of the Ebony Crown and a new medal, star and badge were adopted.



Membership in the order is unlimited and it includes the Monarch and the Prince of Altenburg respectively as Sovereign and Grand Master and Deputy Grand Master. The Monarch alone can grant membership at his own pleasure, meaning it has no requirements for a person to be inducted a member of the order, although as a national order, membership is regularly granted at the Prime Minister's indication, although this is not a requirement. Monarchs, deviating from the pattern used in other Ebenthal orders, is called the Wearer of the Ebony Crown, instead of Sovereign, and the Prince of Altenburg is known as Successor to the Ebony Crown. Male members of the Order are titled "Knights Companion" and female members are called "Ladies Companion".


The King of Ebenthal is the Sovereign and Grand Master of the order. All deeds granting decorations of the Order must bear the signature of the Sovereign and Grand Master. The Deputy Grand Master is empowered to act on behalf of and in place of the monarch if necessary and with the express approval of the monarch; if the monarch is unable to give his consent, it is up to the Chancellor of the order to sanction the acts of the Deputy Grand Master. The Chancellor is a supernumerary member of the order and is appointed to his position by the King. Usually the Prime Minister in office is appointed Chancellor but this is not a requirement. Members of the order are granted a certificate and are eligible to require a personal coat of arms with the insignia of the Order. A single-graded order, its only ranking is that of Knight/Dame.

Precedence and privileges

Members of this order are assigned positions in the order of precedence, ranking above all others members of equal rankings of whichever orders. Consorts, children and children-in-law also feature on the order of precedence; other 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.

All members ot the order are entitled to the prefixes of "Sir" and "Ma'am". When an individual is entitled to use multiple post-nominal letters, the ones of the order (EBN) for both Knights and Dames, standing for Ébano in Portuguese, takes precedence. All recipients may encircle their arms with the circlet of the order.
