The Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of Saint John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta was a Catholic Military Order of a military, chivalrous and noble nature, which split into several main orders after Doomsday, in Celtic South America.and Venice.

History

Pre-Doomsday 

Founded in 1099 in the Kingdom of Jerusalem, Malta was the oldest surviving chivalric order. After the loss of Jersualem in the First Crusade to the Mamluk Sultanate, it became a chartered military order against persecution against Christians. Originally operating on Cyrpus, it moved to Rhodes, Malta and eventually from 1834 in Rome in Palazzo Malta.

Doomsday

On the 27th September 1983 the world was consumed by the chaos that became known as Doomsday. The main headquarters in Rome was destoyed with the strikes upon the city.

Post-Doomsday

With the loss of the central command and collapse of communications, several notable priories were set up.

The forces of the Priory in Ireland initially fared Doomsday well, with the only strike occurring in Northern Ireland. In the first weeks after Doomsday, both Republic and Northern Irish forces and governments worked together to distribute supplies. Alongside other Church institutes, the Order proved effective in maintaning communications. However, in a suprise move, in a meeting between the two governments the Irish Government disestablished its historical ties with the Catholic church to quell rebels in the North, dealing a blow to the Order.

Main areas of operations in Green

On Easter 1984, the first Synod of Ireland since 644 met with members of the various churches of the British Isles with one main aim: re-unication. The Declaration of Armagh was made, and with it the unification of the Catholic, Anglican and Scots Presbyterian churches, using a mixture of their existing organisation. With this the Military Order gained a boost in members and support, and was able to continue it's operations.

Despite this, over more recent years both the Celtic Church and the Order have lost many members and much support. As such, in the present day the Priory in Ireland barely exists, with many of the remaining members moving towards the Vatican.

 With Doomsday, the Order within Venice convened in council and declared a provisional priory government. With the expansion of Venice to parts of the former Yugoslavia, the order was involved in limited medical support.

However, 1988 saw the occupation of Venice by the Sicilian Navy, with the Venitian government in exile in Trieste, while the Order was suppressed by the occupying order. However, while the de facto occupation of Venice by the Alpine Confederation saw some decline of the order, it continued to flourish and provide medical support to the local areas,

With the establishment of contact with South America, the Archbishop of Venice acknowledged Rio, with the Order joining that based in Rio. As such, it has regained its prestige and influence. 

From the 2010 the Sovereign Military Order of Malta of Venice have created the Special Auxiliary Volunteer Corps of the Venetian Navy of the Italian Knights of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta. This corps collaborated with the other armed forces on medical and humanitarian support, during the Second Sicily War the corp have give medical support at the civilian involted in the war and at the refugees, and at the Sicilians prisioner of war captured by the Armed Forces of the Italian Peninsula Alliance. There is also a idea of create a only Special Auxiliary Volunteer Corp of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, under the control of the Italian Peninsula Alliance
