Italy, Naples, 29 June 2021 / United Kingdom, Teddington, 25 October 2021. Marek Sobola, CEO Servare et Manere has been awarded the Bronze Benemerenti Medal of the Sacred Military Constantinian Order of St George (Italian: Sacro Militare Ordine Costantiniano di San Giorgio) for his merits related to the implementation of the International Tree of Peace. The award was given by His Royal Highness, Prince Carlo of Bourbon-Two Sicilies, Duke of Castro, Head of the House of Bourbon-Two Sicilies (former ruling family of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies).
The Sacred Military Constantinian Order of Saint George is a dynastic order of knighthood of the House of Bourbon-Two Sicilies documen-ted as early as the end of the 12th century and currently divided into several lines. The order was confirmed as a religious-military order in a 1718 papal bull owing to a notable success in liberating Christians in the Peloponnese. Alongside the Sovereign Military Order of Malta it is the sole international Catholic Order which still has this status today. Although it is not an order of chivalry under patronage of the Holy See, membership is restricted to practising Catholics.
