The Wisam Al Rafidain (Order of the Two Rivers) was an Order awarded by the Kings of Iraq and then the Presidents of Iraq. It was named after the two rivers of the Kingdom (the Euphrates and the Tigris) and awarded by the Kings of Iraq between 1922 (when the monarchy was established) and 1958 (when the monarchy ended) and then by the Presidents of Iraq through the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. It had five classes and two divisions (military and civil).[1]
