The Order of Ferdinand I was established in 1929 in commemoration of King Ferdinand I, the "unifier" of Romania. It was conferred exclusively upon Romanian citizens in recognition of contributions to the unification of the nation in 1918. It ranked equally with the Order of Carol I as the highest decoration in Romania until 1937 when it fell into disuse. It was later officially discontinued when the Romanian monarchy was abolished in 1947.

There was a limit of 40 members in the Commander grade from 1930-1933 and a limit of 60 members from 1933-1937.

The Commander is identical to the Grand Officer, however, only the Grand Officer was worn with a Breast Star.
