The orders, decorations, and medals of Ebenthal, nationally called the National Pantheon of Honours and Awards (Portuguese: Panteão Nacional de Honrarias e Premiações) it is the collective that comprises the honorific and chivalric orders, the medals and the courtesy titles granted by the State of Ebenthal to its citizens and to foreigners. The Ebenthal honor system has as its main function to recognize and reward individuals for specific actions or achievements whether or not related to the Kingdom of Ebenthal. It consists of three types of award: honours and decorations, such as titles and membership in orders of knighthood, in recgonition to merit in terms of deeds, achievements and services to the country; and medals, to recognise bravery, long and/or valuable service and/or good conduct.

As the head of state, the King of Ebenthal is the fons honorum of all orders, which are granted at his pleasure. The Pantheon of Honours include both dynastic orders, which are mastered in perpetuity by a dynasty, regardless of their reigning status or not, and by national orders, that belong to the state and are guided by the Head of State, whoever he may be. Dynastic orders are entirely and entirely the responsibility of their Grand Masters, while national orders have government-appointed chancellors who administer membership. The federative units of Ebenthal have the autonomy to create their own orders, but so far only one exists. According to the enacted honors directive, all Ebenthali orders must necessarily be single-graded.
