The originally four-class (grand cross, commander of number, commander and knight) order for general merit in rendering civil services to Spain, with affiliated silver cross, was established by Royal decree of Alfons XIII (1886-1941, reigned since 1886 resp. 1902) of June 25, 1926, (published in the Gaceta de Madrid no. 177 of June 26). The first reglamentos were proclaimed with Royal decree no. 903/1927 of May 17, 1927, (published in the Gaceta de Madrid no. 137 of the same day). With royal circular order no. 494/1927 of May 23, 1927, (published in the Gaceta de Madrid no. 145 of May 25) the corrected reglamentos have been proclaimed again. With decree of the Ministry of State of July 24, 1931, (published in the Gaceta de Madrid no. 208 of July 27) abolished all orders depending from this ministry (with exception of the Order of Isabella the Catholic), and therefore also the Order for Civil Merit. With decree of November 7, 1942 (published in the Boletín Oficial del Estado no. 315 of November 11) Francisco Franco y Bahamonde (1892-1975, reigned since 1936), head of the Spanish state, restored the order adding the classes "Ribbon" [Banda] for ladies, Officer [Oficial] and "Bow" [Lazo] for ladies. The new reglamento of the order was proclaimed with decree of February 3, 1945 (published in the Boletín Oficial del Estado no. 41 of February 11), thus replacing the former royal crown on the insignia with the so-called "imperial crown" of the catholic kings (2nd model). With decree of July 26, 1957, (published in the Boletín Oficial del Estado no. 205, of August 12), a collar class was introduced.

The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, today Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) has been founded on July 29, 1890, after the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution had refused to accept women in their society. In the very first years the society was granted personal protection of the First Lady Caroline Lavinia Scott Harrison (1832-1892), wife of Benjamin Harrison, the 23rd President of the United States of America (1833-1902, President from 1889 until 1893). Requirements for application to the still existing philanthropic society are: female sex, a minimum age of 18 years and a provable direct descent from a soldier or another person of the Revolutionary period (1765-1783) who aided the cause of independence (“Nobility of the Revolution”).
