"Fons Honor" (Fount of Honor)  


Orders and Decorations


 A note from HM, The King of Amethonia

"Dear citizens, friends, and visitors, there has been much chatter of late about whether or not an order of decoration is an "ancient order" or a "modern order", and also, if an order is a "chivalric", or a "self styled" order.  Well to put all of this  useless banter to rest, I will say this;

  • At one time all orders were 'modern' when one considers that they were created in their day.
  • At some time all orders will eventually become 'ancient' (if such an order is not already) when one considers the eventual passage of time, God willing.
  • All orders were at one time 'self styled' because one or more people created such an order after his or her, or their own will and desire, to recognize and/or set apart one or more individuals. Enough said. (HM, the King of Amethonia)

Note: The below orders, medals, and decorations,were founded by the monarch and founder of        the Amethonian Realm, as such the sovereign is the sole authority, (Fons Honor), of the same.

       * There are two ways to become a Member, up to a Knight of an Order.

          The 1st way is by submitting a formal request, (in this case further instructions will be given to the applicant).

          The 2nd way is by Special Invitation from the Sovereign.

      *Awards, ranks, and other decorations must be earned, and are awarded, (conferred), at the sole        prerogative of the Sovereign.  An  individual may nominate another person for an order or              award, however, one may not nominate his or herself for a medal or award.
