The Most Honorary Order of the Bath is a British order of chivalry founded by George I on May 18, 1725. The name comes from an ancient rite, when applicants were subjected to a nightly wakefulness with fasting, prayer and bathing on the eve of receiving a knighthood. In terms of seniority in the British system of awards, the order ranks fourth after the Order of the Garter, the Order of the Thistle and the Order of St. Patrick.
