History


This Order was instituted by Grand Duke Friedrich I of Baden in a single grade and it was originally conferred as part of the Order of the Zähringer Lion.

The Order became independent of the Order of the Zähringer Lion on September 9, 1896, when it was expanded into four classes.

The Order could be conferred upon any individual for loyal service, as well as in recognition of benevolence.

The awards were conferred within two divisions, the Civil Division and the Military Division.

The Civil Division awards featured a surmounting crown, and the Military Division awards featured a surmounting crown and crossed swords.

The royal monogram of Grand Duke Friedrich I of Baden was featured on the obverse medallion.
