Illustrious Royal Order of Saint Januarius (Italian: L'Insigne
Reale Ordine di San Gennaro) is an order of knighthood bestowed by
the head of the Royal House of Bourbon of the Two Sicilies. It was
the last great dynastic collar order to be constituted as a
chivalric fraternity, with a limitation to Roman Catholics, and a
direct attachment to the dynasty rather than the state. The order
continues to be bestowed today by the Head of the Royal House of
Bourbon of the Two Sicilies. The founder of the Order, Charles VII
of Naples, who ruled from 1734 until 1759, was the first reigning
monarch to reside in this kingdom since 1502. As a young monarch,
Charles was considerably influenced by his father Philip V of
Spain, who had proved a capable if erratic ruler, not only bringing
peace to his kingdom but ultimately re-establishing Spanish
influence in Italy.
