The royal family founded the Royal Order of the Knights in order to cultivate and develop traditional chivalric skills and values, through culture, spirituality, art, sport and humanitarian work. In its operation, the Royal Order of the Knights revives the most exalted from the Serbian and Byzantine arduous spirit.
