Order of the Roman Eagle

The Fascist Order of the Roman Eagle founded in 1942 with civil and military divisions,[1] was abolished in Italy in 1944;[2] although it continued to be awarded by Benito Mussolini in the short-lived Italian Social Republic until 1945.[3] An organisation of the same name was founded by Romano Mussolini in 1997.[4] as self-styled order.
