History


This cross was instituted by Emperor Franz II in 1914 and awarded in 1815 to all troops that participated in the wars against Napoleon in 1813-1814.

The cross was originally meant to be awarded in different sized versions relating to the recipient's military rank. This plan was never executed, and the cross was only ever manufactured in one size for front-line combatants.

The cross dies were cut by J.N. Harnisch.

The Gold Cross was only awarded once to Fieldmarshall Prince Schwarzenberg.
