Abstract: Let $\mathbf{F}$ be a subfield of the field of real numbers and let $\mathbf{F}_{n}$ ($n \geq 2$) be the $n \times n$matrix algebra over $\mathbf{F}$. It is shown that if $\mathbf{F}_{n}$is a lattice-ordered algebra over $\mathbf{F}$ in which the identity matrix 1 is positive, then $\mathbf{F}_{n}$ is isomorphic to the lattice-ordered algebra $\mathbf{F}_{n}$ with the usual lattice order. In particular, Weinberg's conjecture is true.
