The Order had two grandmaesters in all known history of its existence, Dama Lukrezia Augusta and Count Leka Dukagjini. The last one wasn't never a member of Order but after the false proclaimed death of Lukrezia Augusta she said in her testament that she left command of Order to Leka Dukagjini and asked him to bring back glory to Order. And since that time Leka Dukagjini is grandmaester of Order, he didn't make a declaration to return the command to Lukrezia Augusta after she is returned to Albania.

The greatest victory of Order was against the war with BE-OB that started in Albania, town of Lezhë on March 1459 and ended on May.

In the beggining of the year 1460, The Order shows his power on sea by destroying three ships of enemies with their biggest ship named Redon a.k.a "Dragon of Adriatic".
