Our ancient Sovereign Military Order of Chivalry was formed from five independent Mercenary Companies and given Letters of Patent by Rene I, Regnant King of the Two Sicilies and Titular King of Jerusalem in 1439 AD. Rene I referred to our Sovereign Order as the New Knights Templar.
Our present Charter was given to us by our present Royal Patron in October 2015 , thus ensuring the continuity of the past five hundred and eighty years under its many historical and Royal Sovereign Grand Commanders. The Sovereign Order of the Fleur de Lys is equally open to both Ladies and Gentlemen and having an international presence we are strong in encouraging fellowship while supporting worthy charitable works. The Sovereign Order is very much “value-driven” and aims to promulgate better citizenship amongst peoples based upon the ancient Knightly Code. On admission Postulants vow to live by the precepts of Honour, Duty, Truth and Justice in the spirit of the ancient Orders of Chivalry and they are asked to put ‘Honour above Self, Duty above Wealth, Justice above the Law and Truth above All’.
