The former Empress of Persia
H.I.H. Princess Soraya
H.E. Don Antonio de Pleguezuelos y Velasco
Founder & Grand Master
 
 
This Order of Chivalry was born as a result of a friendship between H.E. Don Antonio de Pleguezuelos y Velasco, and the former Empress of Persia, Her Imperial Highness Princess Soraya, at south of Spain, in Marbella, where the former Empress used to spend her summer holidays.

That friendship planted the seeds of an idea in the Grand Master's mind, as he realized that honor as a noble value has not yet died out.

Without hesitation Her Imperial Highness encouraged him to act on this idea, as you can see, it did not stay only an idea.

H.I.H. Princess Soraya enthralled with the idea, and She said to the Grand Master:

"Do it, do not leave it just an a idea. I am certain that People of Honor and Royals will agree. Throughout my life I have had moments of great happiness, and moments that were not so good. But it is at these bad moments that one can recognize who your friends really are, your loyal friends, and this noble mission of yours will join persons of honor from differents countries, with a noble goal.
 


ou may believe me without any oath that I would my noble Order, as it is the child of my brain, were one of the most beautiful, the most ingenious, and cleverest that could be imagined. But I could not counteract Nature's law that everything shall beget its like; and what, then, tilled wit of mine beget but the founding of a Order, full of thoughts of all sorts and such as never came into any other imagination -just what might be begotten in a spanish charming city, Marbella, pearl of the Mediterraneum, in a cheerful retreat.
Pleasant waves, see breeze, bright skies, peace of mind, these are the things that go far to make even the most barren Muses fertile, and bring into the world births that fill it with wonder and delight.

any times did I take up the pen to write, and lay it down again, not knowing what to write. One time, was pondering with the papers before me, thinking of what I should say, there came unexpectedly a certain lively, a clever friend, who, seeing us so deep in thought, asked the reason; to which I, making no mystery of it, answered that I was thinking which name I could give to my Order, which so troubled us that I had a mind to publish to the world, the most noble Knights and Dames of Honor. further information

n profound silence I listened to what my friend said, and her observations made such an impression on me that, without attempting to question her, I admitted her soundness, and out of her I determined to make this letter; wherein, gentle reader, you will perceive our friend´s good sense, my good fortune in finding such an adviser in such a time of need, came to my mind "Order of the Royal Honor", a name, to my thinking, royal, noble, original and significant enough that it will easily be held by the inhabitants of kingdoms the world over as being one of the most prestigious and honorable Order their lands have ever seen.
 

ears later, I went to visit H.S.H. Prince Alfonso zu Holenlohe to his private villa in Marbella, and when I explained the our mission to him, he showed great enthusiasm, wishing to participate in the Order of the Royal Honor, keeping always his entrepreneur spirit, since he had friends within the Royal European and Arab Houses.

He commented to me that people had called him a crazy visionary five times:

"The first time was because I made a tourist resort in Marbella, people at that time used to go to the north, the second time was for taking Volkswagen into Mexico when it was full of Yankee cars, the third time was for bringing Volvo to Spain, when Spain had no commercial agreements with Sweden, the fourth was for making a ski lift at Sierra  Nevada, and the fifth was for making wine at Ronda…, but you are crazy too ."

H.S.H. Prince Alfonso of Hohenlohe-Langenburg
