Plate 41: 'Toscanen. Orde van den Heiligen Stephanus - Orde van St. Joseph.' (Tuscany. Order of Saint Stephen - Order of Saint Joseph). The Order of Saint Stephen (Official: Sacro Militare Ordine di Santo Stefano Papa e Martire, 'Holy Military Order of St. Stephen Pope and Martyr') is a Tuscan dynastic-military order founded in 1561. The order was created by Cosimo I de' Medici, first Grand Duke of Tuscany. The Order of Saint Joseph was instituted in 1807 by Ferdinand III, Grand Duke of Tuscany during his reign as Grand Duke of Wirzburg. It was transformed into a Tuscan Dynastic Order in 1817.
