The Most Glorious Order of the Willow is the second most senior chivalric order in Saxeberg. It was established by the King on the 29th June 2013.

History

The order was established as not everyone would be deserving of the Order of the Rose and therefore a second order would be needed to reward citizens. It was first awarded on the 16th August 2013.

Grades

In descending order of seniority:

  • Knight/Dame Grand Commander (GCW)
  • Knight/Dame Commander (KCW/DCW)
  • Companion (CW)

Only the two senior ranks are deemed knights and entitled to the style "Sir/Dame".

Foreign Recipients

Foreign recipients are given the post-nominal "GCW" however are not entitled to the style "Sir/Dame" unless they become a citizen (which may also result in downgrading due to quotas).
