History


The Life Saving Medal was founded by Duke Leopold Friedrich of Anhalt-Dessau-Köthen and Duke Alexander Carl of Anhalt-Bernburg. It was conferred upon citizens who had risked their life to rescue and aid people in conditions of extreme danger and peril.

From 1851 to 1863, the Medal was jointly awarded by both Duchies. After 1918, it was awarded by the nation state of Anhalt.
