The Order of the Dragon (in Latin Societas Draconistrarum) was a medieval military order similar to the Order of the Templars, in the central area of Europe. Established in December 1408, it was created by Emperor Sigismund of Luxembourg in 1408, mainly to protect Christianity from the Ottoman threat.
Among the members of this order there was also Vlad Tepes’s father, ennobled in 1431 and receiving the name of Dracul. His seal bore the dragon’s mark. Vlad Dracul carried the symbol of the Dragon everywhere, on flags, coins and seal.
The motto of the chivalric order was “The Power of the Dragon“.
Among the knights of the order were the military, nobles and high clerics. They were financially assisted by the king, in order to pay his soldiers and support his army.
