List of Knights Companion of the Order of the Bath


List of Knights Companion of the Order of the Bath

This is a list of those men who were made Knights Companion of the Order of the Bath from the date of the Order's revival by King George I of Great Britain, 18 May 1725, to its reorganisation on 2 January 1815. During this period the Order was limited to the Sovereign (the King), the Great Master and thirty-six Knights Companions. Knights Companion bore the postnominal KB. Those Knights living at the time of the remodelling of the Order automatically became Knights Grand Cross, with the postnominal GCB.

Founder Knights

All the founder knights were invested on 27 May 1725 (except Lords Inchiquin and Tyrconnell, who were invested on the 28 May, and the Duke of Richmond, who was not invested at all) and then installed on the 17 June 1725.
