History


The Commemorative Medal for the King Wedding was founded in Spain by the City Hall of Cádiz, in commemoration of the wedding of King Fernando VII/Ferdinand VII and his niece, Maria Isabel of Portugal, on September 29, 1816. The Medal was conferred upon the wedding attendants, and helpers.

The Medal was authorized with Gold, Silver, and Bronze categories. The Gold Medal was conferred upon the King, consort Queen, and Royal family; the Silver and Bronze Medals were awarded to the rest of the attendants, and assistants.

There are known a large number of silver, bronze and gilt bronze version of this Medal.

It is possible that this Medal also features a cross-shape; however, this information is not confirmed.

The reverse design is based on the design of the Medal for the Constitution of Cádiz in 1812 by Félix Sagau y Dalmau. See ESP... for more information.

The Medal depicts the obverse and reverse inscriptions in Latin. The reverse inscription translates to "I have placed sentinel on the walls, perpetual alliance between Spain and Portugal."
