Order of Prince Danilo I

The Order of Prince Danilo I (Serbian: Орден Књаза Данила I, romanizedOrden Knjaza Danila I) was an order of the Principality and later Kingdom of Montenegro. It is currently a dynastic order granted by the head of the House of Petrović-Njegoš, Crown Prince Nicholas. It is awarded to prominent champions of the preservation of Montenegrin independence and for other humanitarian, scientific, artistic and pro-social achievements as defined by statute.

Ribbon of the order

Alterations were made to the appearance of the original decoration created by Prince Danilo, and during the rule of King Nikola I Petrović Njegoš the Order underwent two restructurings. During the first restructuring in 1861, three classes were introduced, while in the second restructuring, in 1873, an additional class was added, so that not only is there a star in the 1st class but also a 2nd class with star was introduced. By 1922, the order consisted of five classes: Grand Cross, Grand Officer, Commander, Officer, and Knight or Chevalier.[1]

Although no longer a state order, Montenegrin officials such as the President of Montenegro, Filip Vujanović, have accepted the order. [2]
