According to a legend the order goes back to a militia founded by Emperor Constantine the Great (ca. 270/288-337, since 306 Roman Emperor), renewed as a military order in 1190 by the Byzantine Emperor Isaak II. Angelus Comnenus (1155-1204, Emperor from 1185 until 1195 and from 1203 until 1204). Giovanni Andrea Angelo Flavio Comneno, Duke Drivasto (died 1699), ceded the Grand Magistery to Francesco I. Maria Farnese, Duke of Parma (1678-1727, reigned since 1694). After the Farnese family had died out, Charles V/VII (1716-1788, reigned from 1735 until 1759 as king of Naples and Sicily, since 1759 as Charles III King of Spain) in 1734 brought the Grand Magistery into his kingdom, where it existed as an order of the kingdom until 1860 respectively the end of the government in exile in Rome in 1870. Due to the fact that the order was considered as a dynastical order of the Royal Dynasty of Bourbons-Two Sicilies, it continued to exist also in the Kingdom of Italy and later in the Italian Republic. Due to dynastical struggles in 1960 two princes of the house claimed the Grand Magistery, and as a fact the order was devided into two obediences, the one (“Italian-French obedience”) confirmed by the Pope and the President of the Italian Republic, and the other (“Spanish obedience”) confirmed by the king of Spain.
