Estimated market value:
The Order was instituted by Duke Charles Louis, and it was awarded to Roman Catholics in recognition of extraordinary civil merit.
It was amended by the son of Duke Charles Louis, Charles IIII, Duke of Parma, in 1849. Thus the re-organized version of this Order is grouped within the Orders of the Duchy of Parma.
This Order was only awarded from 1836-1849 within the Duchy of Lucca.
See the Civil Merit Order of St. Louis in the Orders of the Duchy of Parma for more information.
