It was founded to replace the Civil Order of Alfonso XII, which was abolished in 1933 during the government of the Second Spanish Republic. Currently, it is awarded either Spanish or foreign citizens in recognition of meritorious service within the fields of education, science, culture, teaching, and researching.
