History


This cross was established by King Ludwig II and it was awarded to men, women, and children who provided exemplary voluntary aid by caring for the sick and wounded during the war.

There is some variation in the shape of the enamelled cross in the medallion of the Cross.

The Cross was awarded on a sash for Princely recipients.

When the cross was awarded to women it was worn on a bow ribbon.
