Imperial Orders of Merit
The Most Illustrious Order of the Fauglia
(Imperial Division)
OF
6833
Marino Zambrano
The Order of the Fauglia was established by Marino Zambrano, Duke of Rena, in 6833, along with 19 other founding members (Masters of the Order) and as such is the oldest Order of Friendship in Anisora. The Order has three divisions: Imperial, Military and Civilian. The Imperial Division is awarded at the emperor's pleasure, but is officially awarded for service to the Anisoran throne. The Imperial Division is limited to 20 members, most of which are relatives of the current Emperor, and only has the one class, unlike the Military and Civilian Divisions which both have 3 classes.
The Most Loyal Order of Vetriano

PV/MV
7364
Marius I
The Order of Vetriano, formally the Order of the Confederation of Vetriano, was founded by Marius I in his role as Grand Master of the Confederation of Vetriano in 7364. The Order was originally made up of the heads of state of the 42 states within the Confederation, whose rank reflected the rank of the state they ruled: Master for a king; Commander for a prince; Officer for a duke; and Companion for a count. Since the assimilation of the Confederation into the Anisoran Empire in 7367, the Order's membership has continued to be exclusive to the heads of state of the constituent states of the Empire. Members are traditionally sworn in at Vetriano Castle.

The Order is awarded for personal services to the Imperial Crown of Anisora and the House of Decus. The Order is awarded in four ranks, Master, Commander, Officer and Companion. The Order is named after Colombera Palace in Pena, where the first recipients of the Order received their award.

Marius, Grand Prince of Pastana
The Order of the Griffin was founded by Prince Marius, the future Marius II, the year after he was formally invested with the Crown of the newly created Grand Principality of Pastana by his father Marius I. The Grand Master of the Order has always traditionally been the incumbent Grand Prince of Pastana and heir apparent of the Anisoran Empire. The Order is awarded in four ranks, Master, Commander, Officer and Companion. The Order is named after the Imperial griffin of the House of Decus, which Emperor Marius took as his emblem during the Anisoran Civil War.

DD/CD/
PD/MD
7513
Flavian I
The Order is awarded in four ranks, Master, Commander, Officer and Companion and is awarded for services to the Anisoran People. The Order was originally founded to honour foreign allies who had in some way helped Anisora during the Pan-Anarian War, although now the Order is awarded to foreigners for a wide range of services to the Anisoran People. The Order is named after Ex. Depellorrion, considered to be the patron exemplar of Anisora.

2 First level Anisoran military decorations, except the Imperial Flavian Order, are commissioned as a single class, unlike most of the other Anisoran military decorations which are normally made up of three classes.

3 The Order of the Holy Wheel was instituted at a time of great religious fervour in Anisora in direct response to significant Izhaic incursions into Anisoran Anaria Minor. In the later stages of the Tahani wars and afterwards, great religious significance was placed on the conflict.
