 There is a legacy chain which has been passed down through all Knights and Masters of Arms who have lived in Ealdormere. ​ Traditionally this chain is passed on to the newest member of the Order of Chivalry, either at their elevation ceremony or when they first move into the Kingdom and swear fealty to the Crown of Ealdormere. ​ Knights wear the legacy chain, while Masters of Arms hold it in trust.  ​ There is a legacy chain which has been passed down through all Knights and Masters of Arms who have lived in Ealdormere. ​ Traditionally this chain is passed on to the newest member of the Order of Chivalry, either at their elevation ceremony or when they first move into the Kingdom and swear fealty to the Crown of Ealdormere. ​ Knights wear the legacy chain, while Masters of Arms hold it in trust.  ​

 The actual “Knighting” ceremony is one of the few honours in the SCA that is not entirely bestowed by the Crown; if the sitting monarchs are not themselves members of the Order of the Chivalry, a member of the Order is required to participate in the actual Knighting as Corpora states that “only a knight can make a knight.” All members of the Order of the Chivalry, therefore, are in direct lineage to the first Knight in the SCA, one Sir Siegfried von Hoflichskei who was a mundane knight and one of the original attendees at the 1966 May Day Party which became the start of the SCA.  The actual “Knighting” ceremony is one of the few honours in the SCA that is not entirely bestowed by the Crown; if the sitting monarchs are not themselves members of the Order of the Chivalry, a member of the Order is required to participate in the actual Knighting as Corpora states that “only a knight can make a knight.” All members of the Order of the Chivalry, therefore, are in direct lineage to the first Knight in the SCA, one Sir Siegfried von Hoflichskei who was a mundane knight and one of the original attendees at the 1966 May Day Party which became the start of the SCA.
