First version of the Order of the Ruthenian Eagle.

Created almost a month after the creation of the country, it was one of the oldest orders of Ruthenia and had two current styles. The first version featured golden eagles and wreaths of intertwined laurels, which ended in an Order star pendant. The second version had its design inspired by the Order of Saint Andrew, the famous Russian award.

The Order of the Ruthenian Eagle was inspired by the Order of St. Prince Lazar of Serbia in its endowment requirements, while the name of the order, in order to also make a reference to the national symbol of Ruthenia, can also be a tribute to the Order of the Black Eagle.

After the creation of the Karno-Ruthenian Empire, it remained as the highest order of the Empire, until the creation of the Order of the Edelweiss. It was then declared extinct.
