Sovereign Military Order of the Dragon was founded on Vidovdan (St. Vitus Day), June 28th, 2011, by His Royal Highness the Prince Aleksandar Karadjordjevic, on the proposal of Mr. Srdjan Stanisic and Mr. Dejan Damnjanovic. This order, in historical terms, is based on the old Order of the Dragon. HRH Prince Aleksandar has accepted to be the founder, patron and the Grand Master of the newly established Order, and by signing the founding charter, which took place in Paris, he declared Mr. Srdjan Stanisic a knight and the Chancellor of the Order, and Mr. Dejan Damnjanovic a knight and the Commander of the Order. HRH Prince Aleksandar, with this charter, which is the most important document of the Order, authorized Mr. Stanisic and Mr. Damnjanovic to implement the necessary procedures regarding registration and organization of the Order, and in the founding charter he designated that the headquarters of the Order will be in Belgrade, Serbia.
Since 2016, and passing away of HRH Prince Aleksandar, HRH Prince Vladimir is the patron and leader of the Sovereign Military Order of the Dragon.
