Orders of lay knights were founded between 1325 and 1470 in almost every kingdom of Western Christendom, and played an important part in the life of the court. This book defines the 'monarchical' orders as those with corporate statutes which attached the presidential office to the crown of the princely founder, or made it hereditary in his house.
