The Imperial Constantinian

Military Order of Saint George

A History Of The Order In Colorado

 

In the early 1980’s, the late his excellency general Ronald Maclennon of Maclennon, knight commander in the Imperial Constantinian Military Order of Saint George, was a special guest at the Long’s Peak Scottish/Irish Festival where he was introduced to Dr. James Durward.
 
Dr. Durward was invested into the Imperial Constantinian Military Order of Saint George, as a knight of Saint George, then a knight officer, and finally as knight commander, prior of Colorado.  In 1995, Princess Patricia Palaeologina, supreme grand master of the order, installed his excellency chevalier James Durward as knight grand cross, the baron of Brusa, grand prior of the grand priory for the mountains and plains.
 
Since 1990, other worthy individuals have been invested into this ancient order bringing the current total number to thirty seven.  In 1996, at the request of the princess, the priory became active and includes the following states:  Colorado, Kansas, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming.  In April 2006, by order of the princess, his excellency chevalier James, the baron of Brusa, Durward was selected as deputy supreme grand master of the imperial Constantinian Military Order of Saint George and the rank of Grand Cross and Colors St. George.
 
In October 2007 two new priory’s were established under the grand priory for the mountains and plains. They are the priory of the mountains and the priory of the plains. Senior officer of the grand priory will constitute the grand priory council.
 
In our modern culture, our priory’s are dedicated to maintaining the values of chivalry through family, fellowship, education and community service.
