The [[Empire of Agber]] has two orders of chivalry common to all realms. The current Font of Honor for these orders is [[Arlene, Empress of Agber|Empress Arlene]]. There are an additional seventeen twenty orders between the six seven national territories, with their head of state serving as their respective font of honor.
==Overview of the Empire's Orders==
Orders of Chivalry have always been utilized by the Empire. Even its predecessor, the [[Principality of Kolios|Kingdom of Kolios]], established two orders on the same day it was founded. The higher of these two orders, the [[Sanctified Order of the Crucifix]], was elevated to an order of the Empire in 1998, leaving the now Principality with only a single order until it was returned to Koliosian control in 2020.
Membership in the Empire's orders was initially intangible. Knights and Dames were simply afforded the honorific of "Sir" or "Dame," without any kind of award letter or regalia. In 2000, new honorees were also given a printed certificate declaring their membership and their rank within each respective order. It was not until 23 March 2003 that the first physical regalia for an order was bestowed. This was for the [[Order of the Empire of Agber]], to Erika Miller, as a Dame of the order. By the end of 2003, physical regalia existed for each of the orders, with each rank having their own unique regalia by January of 2005. As none of the regalia for any order is custom-made, there has been turnover in suppliers, with regalia changing in appearance over the years. The appearance of regalia has remained relatively stable since 2013.

===Order of Precedence===
All orders bestowed by the Empire carry a higher precedent in the Empire and its subsidiary nations. This has created an interesting landscape where significantly more prestigious honors are considered technically lower than others. For example, being named a Dame Grand Cross of an order in [[Grand Duchy of Carthage |Carthage]] is generally regarded as a much higher honor than that of a Knight in the [[Order of Arlene I]], even though the latter is announced, seated, or listed first.
Within the court of an individual territorial nation, their knighthoods take precedence over those of other nations. For example, in the [[Reino de Cordova]], a Knight of the [[Order of the Mariposa]] would precede a Dame Grand Cross in the [[Order of Carthage]], even though the Order of Carthage is that nation's highest honor, and Mariposa is comparatively less prestigious. While this approach to precedence may seem counter-intuitive to some, it has been deemed as the simplest way to proceed by Empress Arlene.
==Orders of the Empire of Agber==
==Orders of the Reino de Cordova==
The [[Reino de Cordova ]] currently has four orders of chivalry. The current font of honor for Cordovese orders is Reina Celestina. On 30 June 2020, Reina Celestina declared that the nation's [[Order of the Redwood]], which had not been awarded since 2011, would be revived and reimagined as the Order of the Redwood Throne. As part of this retooling, the order would be expanded and designated as the highest Cordovese honor. No date for this change has been announced yet, but preparations for it are ongoing.
