Orders of knighthood and chivalry have existed since the Middle Ages, when they were intended to unite important noblemen in bonds of loyalty to their monarch, and act as impressive rewards for their services. They have survived into modern times as a means of rewarding people of all classes and occupations for their contributions at international, national, or local levels. Peter Duckers introduces the insignia of such orders, ranging from the 'Great Orders' of the Garter and the Thistle, to the Order of the British Empire. The insignia worn by the various ranks within the Orders are often of the highest quality and, like campaign medals and decorations, have become a popular area for collecting and research.

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2008. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book introduces the insignia worn by members of British Orders of Knighthood and Chivalry. These Orders have existed since the early Middle Ages and were initially intended to unite important noblemen in bonds of loyalty to their monarch or to act as impressive rewards for their services. Over the course of time, appointments to Orders were made to distinguished persons for services rendered to the sovereign or to the state and they have survived into modern times as another means of rewarding people of all classes and occupations for their contribution at international, national or local levels. Some, like the Great Orders of the Garter and the Thistle or the Order of Merit, remain the province of a very select few who have rendered service of signal importance, usually over a long period; others, like the Order of the British Empire, are made much more widely available and reward excellence or dedicated work in all spheres of life. There are those, like the Royal Family Orders or the Royal Victorian Order, which remain exclusively the prerogative of royalty or as rewards for special service to the royal family or sovereign. The insignia worn by the various ranks within the Orders are often of the highest quality and exquisite workmanship and, like campaign medals and decorations, have become a popular field for collecting and research.
