The Order of the Rose is an award recognized all across the Knowne World. Any person who has served as a Queen or King consort is automatically inducted into the order when she or he steps down from the throne.
As defined by corpora: “The Order of the Rose consists of former Royal Consorts of a kingdom. It is specifically charged with encouraging chivalrous and courteous behavior among all members of the Society.” (Corpora, Article VIII.A.4.f)
In Ealdormere, the Order of the Rose holds a Rose Tourney at War of the Trillium each year, where courtesy and chivalry are expected to the highest degree of all combatants. As Ealdormere has never had a King Consort, all current members of the Order of the Rose are female.
