The Orange Order is a Protestant fraternal order based primarily in Northern Ireland. The Orange Order was founded in County Armagh in 1795, during a period of Protestant–Catholic conflict. It is headed by the Grand Orange Lodge of Ireland, which was established in 1798. Its name is attributed to the Dutch-born Protestant King William of Orange, who defeated the army of Catholic King James II in the Williamite–Jacobite War (1688–1691).
