Recognized Fontes Honorum

The following is a list of recognized fontes honorum recognized by the Society to date. Note that this does not include reigning monarchs. (We hope to add them to this list later.)

This list includes only those who we have had to recognize in the process of recognizing Orders of Chivalry or Titles of Royalty or Nobility. Thus the absence of any name from this list does not mean the Society thinks them unworthy, only that we haven't yet studied them.

Those who wish to have another royal added to the list are invited to contact Headquarters for a petition.
