History


This Order was founded by King Maximillian II of Bavaria to award outstanding service and achievement within science and art.

The Order became obsolete with the rise of the Nazi Regime in German in 1933, and it was re-instituted and modified in 1980.

The Decoration for Art features the image of a Pegasus on the reverse.
