WIKIPEDIA : The Royal and Distinguished Spanish Order of Charles III (Spanish: Real y Distinguida Orden Espanola de Carlos III) was established by the King of Spain Carlos III by means of the Royal Decree of 19 September 1771, with the motto Virtuti et marito. Its objective is to reward people for their actions in benefit to Spain and the Crown. Since its creation, it has been the most distinguished civil award that can be granted in Spain, despite its categorisation as a military order. The Order was formally converted to a civil order in 1847. The order’s current regulations were approved by Royal Decree 1051 of 2002. The regulation sets the objective of the order as a means of “rewarding the citizens who, with their effort, initiative and work, have brought a distinguished and extraordinary service to the Nation”. The Grand Master of the order is the monarch of Spain, currently King Felipe VI.
