“Omnis Nobilitas fluit a Rege, tamquam a fonte et ipse suo privilegio potest facere nobilem quemlibet”. “Quod Principi placuit legis habet vigorem”. “All Nobility springs from the Sovereign Prince, as a source, and he alone has the prerogative to ennoble whom he likes.” “What pleases the Prince has the force of law“.
A particular prerogative of the Prince, who is “fons honorum” (source of honors), consists in the “jus honorum”, that is the right, inherent to his sovereign function, to award, grant awards, noble and chivalric dignities, and that is expressed in the faculty “to create nobles and to arm knights” in the Dynastic and Chivalric Orders of his Family. This right is transmitted to his descendants “jure sanguinis” (by right of blood) to infinity.
