The Sovereign's Cypher is given by the Sovereign to recognize those subjects of the East Kingdom who have distinguished themselves by providing exceptional service to the Sovereign. This Order may be awarded by the Sovereign to whomever the Sovereign deems deserving. The Sovereign may give no more than ten Cyphers during a reign, nor will the Sovereign feel required to award any at all, if none are clearly meritorious.


The Sovereign's Cypher was created by Balfar II and Luna II and first presented on April 13 A.S. 30, 1996; it was revised December 5 A.S. 50, 2015, by Brennan II and Caoilfhionn II and again September 22 A.S. 53, 2018, by Brennan III and Caoilfhionn III.

The Sovereign’s Cypher includes all gentles who previously received the King’s Cypher.


The recipients of this award will be entitled to either a scroll proclaiming their meritorious services or a personal token of the Sovereign bearing the Cypher, which is the Sovereign's initial together with an "R".
