 THE ORDER OF MALTA, SOVEREIGNTY, AND INTERNATIONAL LAW
By the end of the century the Order exchanged Ambassadors or Ministers with the Holy Roman Emperor, the Kings of France, Spain, Portugal, Prussia, and Sardinia, and the Emperor of Russia, the Republic of Venice, the United Provinces of the Netherlands, and the Elector of Bavaria.
A Sovereign State has "the fundamental right to demand that other States treat it on a perpetually equal footing."[38] This must be so even if it may appear that their Sovereignty is limited in a way which classic definitions of Sovereignty would consider sufficient to impeach their claims to Sovereignty or independent status.
The Statutes of the Order are the modern equivalent of the ancient Rule confirmed by Pope Paschal II in 1113, but the authority of the Holy See did not affect or impinge upon the validity of the Order’s rule of either Rhodes (from 1310 to 1523) or Malta (from 1530-1798).

 Order of Precedence in England and Wales
Precedence existed in pre-Conquest times: an Anglo-Saxon document states that "in the laws of the English, people and law went by ranks." The Conquest presumably resulted in the introduction of precedence as it was practiced at the court of Normandy, just as titles and offices were imported by the victors.
However, the Order of 1520 was held in high regard, and was adopted by the commissioners for executing the office of Earl Marshal in 1595 when they were asked by Elizabeth I to inquire into place and precedence.
House of Lords Precedence Act 1539 and the Ordinance of 1595, both of which were to a large extent codifying current practice, form the canvass of the order of precedence.

In canon law the general rule is that precedence is determined by rank in the hierarchy both of jurisdiction and of order.
