1348 - The founding of the Order of the Garter by King Edward III of England is announced on St George's Day.
The Most Noble Order of the Garter is an English order of chivalry dating from medieval times. It is the world's oldest national order of knighthood, and the pinnacle of the British honours system.
I plan to start my own order: The Most Noble Order of the Wrist Sweater. I just need to work on the design.
