Footnote: The Order of the Leader (Nishan-i-Sardari) was founded by King Amanullah in 1923, as a reward for exceptional services to the ruler and the nation. It was awarded in two classes: 1st Class (Sardar-i-A'ala) and 2nd Class (Sardar-i-Ali) and conferred by the King on his own initiative. It was made obsolete in 1929 and later revived by King Muhammad Zahir Shah. Recipients of the original order enjoyed the titles of Sardar-i-A'ala or Sardar-i-Ali before their names and received grants of land. (C:41)
