The golden fleece consists of a necklace on which hangs a golden ram. This animal refers to the Greek legend of Argonautes, suggesting that the dynasty of the Burgundians goes back up to the lineage of Troyens. The order of the Golden fleece was created in 1430 by Philippe le Bon, Duke of Burgundy, willing to motivate his knights before participating in a new crusade against the Turks. With the marriage of Charles the Bold’s daughter, Marie de Bourgogne, the order leaves France for Austria and divides between both branches of the dynasty of Habsbourg, Spanish and Austrian. It is still awarded nowadays.
