Royal Britannian Guard

Every kingdom needs its lead warriors, its Knights, to guard the rulers and defeat enemies of the state on the field of battle. Britannia's Knights were initially known as the Order of the Silver Serpent. The Order of the Silver Serpent was a monastic order, sworn to protect the King of Britannia, Lord British. They were often seen as the closest and most deviant protectors of the crown. The order was also featured in the single-player Ultima games. Their derived their name from the Silver Serpent, the symbol of the realm.

The Order was often found in Ultima Prime, the single-player games upon which UO is based. Known members included Geoffrey and Dupre. The Order was traditionally housed, and trained, in Serpent's Hold. Eventually, for reasons that were never quite clear (though there were hints that it was some kind of copyright issue), the Order's name had to be changed to the Royal Knights. Eventually it was called the Royal Britannian Guard.

On some Shards, the Order of the Silver Serpent is a player Guild that seeks to carry on the tradition.
