The Novus Ordo Europa existed since at least the 1800s. Around 1890, a man named Augustus Amsel was the Grand Minister of the organization. The Amsel and Rainwood families had strong ties to the Novus Ordo Europa, with members of both being included in the organization up until the 1930s, at which point their names abruptly cut out of the registry. Around that time, an ancient Egyptian tablet, which had been discovered earlier in the century by Heinrich Kaufmann II, was stolen from a British museum's archives. The Novus Ordo Europa disbanded in 1958, around the time of the Princeton Experiment.
