Instituted by King Ferdinand VII in 1815 with the name Royal and American Order of Isabella the Catholic, the Order was reorganized i
n 1847 and adopted its modern-day name the Royal Order of Isabella the Catholic which is granted “to individuals, Spanish citizens and foreigners alike, who may have provided exceptional services for the benefit of the Nation or who may have contributed significantly to encourage friendly relations and cooperation with the rest of the international community”.

 

The Grand Master of the Order is His Majesty, the King of Spain, with the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation as Grand Chancellor.  All titles of the decorations of the Order must bear the signatures of both.
