Of French Origins, the Order of The Star was founded by King John II in 1351 – in response to England's Order of The Garter. Not to be undone, The Order once boasted some 500 Knights. Similar in administration to The Garter Order, they were installed by The Monarch, and had a similar Ranking structure as well. Their insignia was a Black Star with Golden garlands. They were said to be the start of France's “first” National Army. However, after The Battle of Maurion (1352), The Order was decimated in combat. Charles V never renewed The Order.
