ORDEN NOBILIARIA DE SAN SERGIO (THE NOBLE ORDER OF SAINT SERGIUS)
In our institution (the Corps of the Nobility of Cantabria), the signature or endorsement of other members is not required for admission, instead this admission requirement is replaced by a "trial period", or provisional admission, of one year. During that year applicant for membership still could not use the title of knight of the Corps of the Nobility of Cantabria, so it was necessary to find an appropriate denomination - also in rank of knight. It was therefore necessary to establish a knight order in the Corps of the Nobility of Cantabria. Since it was on September 8 when the idea arose, feast of Pope Saint Sergius (Sergius I), it was decided to name this order after this saint.
Noble applicant for membership in the Corps of the Nobility of Cantabria thus obtains the title of Knight of the Noble Order of Saint Sergius, and this title remains with him even after being accepted as a full member (after one year "trial period") of the Corps of the Nobility of Cantabria.
Full member of the Corps of the Nobility of Cantabria also obtains the title of Knight of the Corps of the Nobility of Cantabria and receives the medal of Knight of the Corps of the Nobility of Cantabria.
The basic rank of the Noble Order of Saint Sergius is a knight, with a knight's cross. However, a deserving knight can also receive a Grand Cross of the Noble Order of Saint Sergius.
CUERPO DE LA NOBLEZA DE CANTABRIA (CORPS OF NOBILITY OF CANTABRIA)
The Corps of the Noblity of Cantabria intends to include those who demonstrate nobility of the paternal lineage, noble titles of the Kingdom of Spain, or the performance of the traditional dignities of personal nobility (for example - Knight of the Order of Isabella the Catholic, Knight of the Order of Charles III ).
We preserve chivalric traditions and foster social relations between partners with the flow of synergies. We are a corporation for those who seek the exclusive and personalized treatment that exists in a small and selected group.
Like any institution in its beginnings, we are carrying out an activity. After having formally presented ourselves by letter to the regional authorities, presenting ourselves before the nobility bodies of the Kingdom of Spain that have more tradition than us, we have directed paths letters of introduction to the Corps of Nobility of Asturias, Galicia, Valencia, Madrid, etc.
Also, our Statutes created various associative positions and honorary titles (Grand Bailio, Magistral Counselor, Protector ...) planned to accommodate the highest nobility or princes of blood, for this reason we have sent presentations of our corporation also to the Grandeza de España in Cantabria, which we have managed to locate, and which are not yet associated with our institution.
The data protection policy has always been a priority that is why we are during these months collecting the informed consent of the people we intend to include on our page. Finally, we have reached goodwill agreements with various cultural institutions to start up our institute, which is the branch of our cultural activity.
