The Order of Fatima was founded in memory of the late Countess to honor illustrious clothiers and seamstresses. It was a non-armigerous award, but during its existence it had enormous prestige. It was unique in that it was in the gift of the Queen, but the "Lady of Hakkim" had veto power, so it was in a sense a Ducal order as well. The Lady of Hakkim was Duchess Khadijah, the real-world daughter-in-law of Countess Fatima. Internal politics were the order's undoing, and finally, at the coronation of King Hasdrubal and Queen Amber, Duke Akbar, as head of House Hakkim, entered court and announced that Hakkim would no longer allow Countess Fatima's name to be associated with it. This had the effect of essentially closing the order, and for many years after, the Order was not spoken of in public. A new order, the Golden Garb, was begun but folded soon after. --Steffan ap Kennydd 18:10, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Token/Regalia

Towards the end of its existence, a badge was designed (by Laura Hawkwood and Stephen of Silverwing) based on the characteristic heraldry of House Hakkim, and intended to serve as the "attributed arms" of Countess Fatima (who actually had no registered device). This badge was Counter-ermine, a garb Or, and intended to be borne on the back of a small mirror. --Steffan ap Kennydd 18:10, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
