Award of Arms

The Crown shall bestow an Award of Arms to those individuals who they deem deserving of recognition for their various achievements. Gentles granted an Award of Arms are entitled to be addressed as “Lord” or “Lady”.
They shall rank after the armigerous Orders of Achievement. This award shall have the effect of converting devices previously registered with the College of Heralds to Arms, and of directing those who have not yet registered armoury to design and register Arms.

Non-Armigerous Orders

In addition to the armigerous Orders, the Crown may create Orders that do not in themselves convey the right to bear arms, nor do they convey any rank in the Order of Precedence. The awards granted by the Coronets of the former Principality of Lochac were non-armigerous.
