Augustan Society

Augustan Society

The Augustan Society, Inc., headquartered in Orlando, Florida, was founded in 1957 (1) to preserve material related to heraldry, genealogy, and orders of chivalry, and (2) to further chivalric ideals in society. The Society moved to its current location from Daggett, CA in 2007. The Society's journal, "The Augustan Omnibus" is published irregularly.
