The Order of the Dragon (lat. Societas Draconistrarum, ger. der Drachenorden, hun. Sárkány Lovagrend, cro. Zmajev red, rom. Ordinul Dragonului, ser. Ред Змаја) was a monarchical chivalric order for selected nobility, created in Hungary in the late Middle Ages. Founded in 1408 by Sigismund, King of Hungary, Croatia and Bohemia (r. 1397-1437) and later Holy Roman Emperor (r. 1433-1437), the Order primarily flourished in Germany and Italy. According to a surviving copy of its statute, the Order required its initiates to defend the Cross and fight the enemies of Christianity.

Do a little bit more research on this FRATERNITY before you make stuff up on this board.
Well, maybe you aren't making this up, but your friend sure is.
THE ORDER OF WOMENS FREEMASONARY....
Freemasonry for women came to this country from France in 1902 in the form of mixed Lodges (Co-Masonry). In 1908 some Co-Masons decided to break away to start a new Order because they objected to control from France and to some of the ritual and influences found in Co-Masonry. They wanted to practise Freemasonry on the same lines as the male United Grand Lodge of England.
The Honourable Fraternity of Antient Masonry was founded on 20th June 1908 and its first Grand Master and driving force was a man - the Rev. Dr. William Frederick Cobb. However, since 1912, the Grand Masters have all been women. The new Order at first included both men and women, but eventually the decision was taken in the early 1920s to restrict entrance to women only and no longer admit men as visitors. Although a handful of loyal men remained in office, by 1935 we had become an exclusively female organisation and we remain so today.
Another Masonic Order for women split off from ours in 1913. This was called the Honorable Fraternity of Ancient Freemasonry, and so to avoid confusion in names we added "Order of Women Freemasons" to our title in 1958. This is the name by which we are known today.

To my knowledge, no co-masonic bodies confer the 33 degrees of the Scottish Rite. I believe they are almost entirely 3 degree systems. (Though arguably, some might say OTO is co-masonic in origin, still, that only goes to 13 or 21 degrees I think?)

We have long promised to bring you essays and writings, controversial
or not, from Masonic leaders nation and world wide. This month,
Carolyn Clark Campbell, a Mason of an American Women's Lodge in New
York under the aegis of the Women's Grand Lodge of Belgium, presents
us an introduction to Women in Freemasonry. Sister Campbell commands
respect for her unique and balanced position in American Freemasonry.
Women in Freemasonry
by Carolyn Clark Campbell
I am a woman, an American, and a Freemason. When I tell
American men who are Freemasons this, they are generally surprised.
This is largely because of the fact that American Freemasonry has been
cut off from the rest of the world. Women Freemasons internationally
now number in the tens of thousands. There are more than 60,000 women
Freemasons in England. Women's lodges also exist in France, Spain,
Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, Denmark, Germany, Turkey, Argentina,
Canada, and now, the USA. I have undoubtedly omitted a few countries
with which I am not yet familiar. I am, by the way, the daughter of
an American Mason who was 32nd degree Scottish Rite.

Why do they claim no telepathy, when the pyramid on the back of the dollar bill is obviously relating to telepathy.
In the Eastern Order of International Co‑Freemasonry, the three Craft Degrees are worked, as well as Degrees of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite and several Degrees of the York Rite.
Guess they are all liars.
