History


This Order was founded by Vincent IV Gonzaga, Duke of Mantua to honour his son's marriage to Princess Marguerite of Savoy.

The Knights of the Order were charged with defending the dignity of the Pope and Catholicism. They were also meant to protect the honour of Ladies, widows, and orphans.

The Order is also known as the Order of the Blood of Jesus Christ.

It was discontinued in 1708, following the death of Ferinando Gonzaga, Duke of Mantua.
