Honours & Decorations
Knights and Dames
The Princess of the Northern Forest may, from time to time, grant Knighthoods to people. There are only two Royal Orders of Knighthood in the Northern Forests; the Royal Order of Arctic Knights (the lowest) and the Royal Order of the Crown of the Northern Forests (the highest) . You can read more about these orders by clicking the Order's Great Seal Below.
The Princess of the Northern Forest may, from time to time, grant honourary titles of Nobility to people. However, these are merely a Incorporeal Hereditament. These are not hereditary honours and last only for the life of the recipient. The title will revert back to the Crown automatically upon the death of the title holder. These cannot be purchased and are generally used for Consular Generals and those who have done a great service to the Principality and the Princely Family. They are; however, rarely ever granted by the Princess.
Medals of the Principality
The Princess of the Northern Forests May, from time to time, award various commendations, awards and medals to individuals. In total there are 8 separate Medals that are available to anyone who is a citizen of any past or present Monarchical nation or State (i.e. it was a Monarchy within the last 125 years) irrespective of their station in life. However, in practice, the Princess's Coronation Medal is awarded exclusively to Northern Forests Subjects.

Petition for Principality Medals
(Petition to the Princess)
None of these state awards are for sale and must be earned in some capacity. The medals above represent all the medals available in the Principality of the Northern Forests. They are crafted with the finest medals by expert Jewelers. The Princess may, at her pleasure, create more awards and medals in the future. She may also grant any award to any person irrespective if they are generally only for Principality Citizens or not. The Princess will award them as she sees fit.
These awards and medals are typically issued for sustained meritorious service or for eminence in a field of endeavour. All medals can be worn on a person's uniform, in order of precedence especially at formal events or in matters of state, greeting foreign diplomats or anytime formal attired is required. The Princess may also strip these awards for any type of dishonourable act(s) committed by an award holder that would bring shame to the Principality of the Northern Forests.
Please be aware that, generally speaking, anyone can petition the Princess to be awarded one of these medals with the exception of the Princess's Coronation Medal. In these cases there will be an application fee that must be paid if the individual meets the eligibility criteria. However, if the Princess grants any medal without being petitioned by that person then there are no fees associated with the award.
All medals come with a Certificate suitable for framing personally signed by the Princess of the Northern Forests. Please be advised that if you choose to petition the Princess for any medal or award that it may take 4-8 weeks for a decision and another 4-8 weeks before the award package is shipped out to you. You will be notified by the e-mail or postal address you provide with your application should you be eligible to receive the award. Petition fees are not refundable, so you should make sure you send all the required information and documents with your application and make sure you meet the criteria.
