Group Description

The Order of the Dragon (German: drachenorden; Latin: societas draconis) is an institution, similar to other chivalric orders of the time, modelled on the Order of St George of Burgundy 1318. and the far older Dragon Courts of Ancient Egypt. It was created in 1408 by the Holy Roman Emperor Sigismund while he was still king of Hungary and his queen Barbara Cilli, mainly for the purpose of gaining protection for the royal family. According to its statute which survives in a copy dated 1707, the Order also required its initiates to defend the Cross and to do battle against its enemies, principally the Turks. The original Order had twenty four members of the nobility, including such notable figures as:

- Sigismund of Luxembourg, King of Hungary, Holy Roman Emperor after 1410
- Despot Stefan Lazarevic of Serbia
- King Alfonso V of Aragon and Naples
- King Vladislav Jagello of Poland
- Grand Prince Vitovd of Lithuania
- Duke Ernst of Austria
- Christopher III, Duke of Bavaria and King of Denmark
- Thomas de Mowbray, Duke of Norfolk after 1439
- Vlad II Tsepesh - Dracul, Duke of Wallachia after 1431
