During his speech, the King remarked, “Today, the Princess of Asturias receives the Golden Fleece Collar, deeply rooted in the History of Spain and Europe. An Order that for centuries has been granted -among others and singularly- to the Prince or Princess of Asturias from a very young age, so that over time he knows, little by little, the traditions and duties of the Crown and understands the responsibilities that one day he will have to assume.”

Addressing to his elder daughter and heiress apparent King Felipe VI said, “Receiving this Toisón implies special responsibilities for you, which you must assume inspired by the deepest values and ideals; values that you must hold and strengthen day by day in your heart; because your actions -all of them- must be guided by the greater sense of dignity and exemplarity, by honesty and integrity, by the capacity of renunciation and sacrifice, by the permanent spirit of improvement, and by your unreserved dedication to your country and your people. ”

The Insigne Order of the Golden Fleece was created in 1430 by the Duke of Burgundy Philip III the Good, on the occasion of his marriage with Isabella of Portugal. Linked to the Family, and not to the Duchy of Burgundy, she passed, through the marriage of the Duchess Maria with the Emperor Maximilian, to her grandson Charles I of Spain, the Emperor Charles V. Since then, the Kings of Spain are the Sovereigns and Great Masters of the Order.

 

It was precisely Charles V who celebrated in 1520 in Barcelona the only Chapter of the Order that took place in Spain. Even today, the choir stalls of its cathedral bear the arms of the fifty-one knights who formed it at that time. After the last Chapter, celebrated in the Cathedral of San Bavón de Ghent in 1559, Felipe II reserved the right to appoint Knights in the vacancies, and exercised it by directly naming Caballero to King Francisco II of France in 1560.

 

The Necklace of the Order, inspired by the myth of Jason, consists of a gold necklace with the arms of the Dukes of Burgundy, from which hangs the Fleece or Fleece, also of gold. The necklaces are property of the Order, to which they must be returned to the death of each Knight.

 

Sovereigns and members of Royal Families and prominent personalities of the aristocracy, politics and weapons, Spanish and foreign have received the Toisón since its founding. The number of Necklaces delivered since then amounts to about one thousand two hundred.


In 1985, Don Juan Carlos granted for the first time the Toisón to reigning Sovereigns, who were the Queens Beatriz of the Netherlands and Margaret of Denmark, and in 1989 it was received by Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
