The Royal Service Order is a dynastic order of knighthood and a house order of chivalry recognising distinguished personal service to the Ingerish Royal Family, or to the Monarchy of New Ingerland generally.

A relatively rare award, there are strict limits on the number of inductees, with a maximum of eighteen recipients of all grades permitted, of which only six may be knights or dames. Admission to the order remains the personal gift of the monarch, and is not awarded by ministerial advice.


The Order was established by Earnest V in February 1927, with the first induction taking place at Chapel Royal, Kingsbury Palace on the 8 October of the same year, originally the birthday of Arthur IV, and now recognised as the official Birthday of Sovereign.


There are currently two grades to the order:
