We consider infinite partial orders in which the order or comparability relations are transitive, non-reflexive, and nonsymmetric. Our purpose is to construct for each infinite cardinal [...] a so-called [...] partial order in which every partial order of cardinality [...] can be isomorphically embedded. Using the Axiom of Choice we easily construct an [...] partial order of cardinality [...], while for those infinite cardinals [...] for which [...], the General Continuum Hypothesis enables us to construct an [...]; universal partial order of cardinality [...].
