The Royal Family Order of Purvanchal, or more formally the Most Noble Royal Family Order of Purvanchal is the second highest chivalric and dynastic order of the province of Purvanchal which is conferred by the Rajpramukh of Purvanchal, as the head of the House of Roy which is the current ruling house of the province as well as the national ruling house. It was constituted on 7 September 2020, along with the Order of the Crown of Purvanchal (formerly the Order of the Territorial Crown) in order to replace the Order of the Crown of Dhrubajyoti. It is bestowed only upon monarchs and members of the royal families of the state and foreign for their exceptional and meritorious services towards the province and the people. It is often granted as a token of friendship and affection to foreign monarchs upon the act of establishment of bilateral relations with Vishwamitra.

History

The first chivalric order of Purvanchal was the Order of the Crown of Dhrubajyoti which was created on 18 June 2020 and only conferred once. On 7 September 2020, Rajpramukh Dhrubajyoti Roy abolished the Order of the Crown of Dhrubajyoti and created the Royal Family Order of Purvanchal as the highest dynastic and chivalric order of Purvanchal along with the Order of the Crown of Purvanchal. The Royal Family Order of Purvanchal remained as the highest order of the state until 4 July 2021 when the Supreme Order of the Royal House of Purvanchal was constituted.

Grades, criteria, and insignia

Grades

The Royal Family Order of Purvanchal or Mahan Darjah Rajkutumbha Purvanchal is awarded in two classes. The Rajpramukh of Purvanchal is at the apex of the order as the sovereign.

  • Grand Knight or Dame (First Class) or Darjah Utama Rajkutumbha Purvanchal - D.K. I
  • Grand Commander (Second Class) or Darjah Prathama Rajkutumbha Purvanchal - D.K. II

Criteria

  • The first class or Grand Knight/Dame class is conferred on the Rajpramukh, their consort, the heir apparent, parents and siblings of the Rajpramukh, senior members of the royal family and foreign monarchs. At the time of the creation of the order, the first class was not conferred on foreigners until the induction of King Arthur II of Ebenthal (later revoked) as the first foreign Grand Knight. The order is conferred as a sign of respect and friendship with the Rajpramukh.
  • The second class or Grand Commander class is conferred on the junior members of the royal family, members of the other royal families of Vishwamitra, foreign monarchs, their consorts, members of foreign royal families and foreign heads of states.

The order is conferred as a sign of respect and fellowship with the Rajpramukh.
