TheDaughters of Imperial Courtis thefemale auxiliaryto theAncient Egyptian Arabic Order Nobles Mystic Shrine, thePrince HallaffiliatedShriners.
Local groups of the Daughters of Isis had been founded in Maryland, Rhode Island, and Washington, DC, in the early years of the twentieth century, and in 1909 representatives of these locals met with a committee from the Prince Hall Shriners and formally requested the formation of a national organization of female relatives of the Ancient Egyptian Arabic Order Nobles of the Mystic Shrine. This was granted at the annual convention of the Shrine held in Detroit, Michigan, on August 24, 1910. At the group's inception, it had twelve courts or local groups.
Local organizations are called Courts and the national organization is called the Imperial Court.
The organizations' rituals are based on theEgyptian legendsofIsis.
