On October 28, 2023 we celebrated the 1711th Anniversary of Constantine's victory on October 28, 312 A.D. in Rome that changed the world
Combined with the Royal Recognition and Charity Gala - the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Resort in Hawaii proved again to be an outstanding venue.
PRINCIPALITY OF CAPPADOCIA
The date was October 28, 312 A.D., when the young general Constantine Flavius won the battle at Milvian Bridge in Rome. This, plus his mother's devotion, let to the rise of Christianity to become the empire's main religion and his rise to emperor. As Constantine I he ruled over the combined Roman empire from Constantinople, now known as Istanbul. He created the SOVEREIGN CONSTANTINIAN ORDER OF CAPPADOCIA to honor his most valiant warriors, who would surely be killed, if they lost the battle and had been captured. He vested the Order with the Roman Province of Cappadocia, a kingdom and principality, with a history spanning more than 3,000 years B.C. Although the Order's land was lost in 1453, when Constantinople fell to the Ottoman Turks, not so were its spirit and its rights as a Sovereign Nation, as the Principality of Cappadocia.
