The Sovereign Constantinian Order of Cappadocia, and as proclaimed "Principality of Cappadocia"

The Sovereign Constantinian Order of Cappadocia was created by the Roman Emperor Constantine I, to honor his most valiant warriors after winning the battle at Milvian Bridge in Rome on October 28, 312 A.D., and bestowed this Order with the Principality of Cappadocia, an annexed Roman Province near Constantinople. The Order lost its territory in 1453 A.D. when Constantinople fell and its members who survived, were disbursed over the western Roman empire and nations. The Principality of Cappadocia is a European Nation with a succession of rulers including the Romans, Knights, Dames, and Nobles of the Constantinian Order of Cappadocia and the Military Order of St. Charles, disbursed over 21 Grand Priories worldwide.
