History


The Order was established on December 12, 1827 by Queen Therese of Bavaria as an order for noble ladies in the kingdom. The Queen established a fund, which annually paid a pension of 100 to 300 guilders to twelve unmarried noble ladies. The pension ceased upon the a recipients marriage, however, if the marriage was in line with the rank of the lady, then she was permitted to continue wearing the Order’s insignia and be known as a Lady of Honour (Ehrendame).

This Order only has a single class. Ranking within the Order is indicated through the addition of diamonds to the cross, and by the ribbon style on which the cross was worn.

The Order is still in existence today and it functions as an honorary society.
