History


The Medal was founded by Elector Wilhelm II and was conferred in recognition of civil merit.

The Medal was conferred upon low-ranking Court and Civil Servants, who rendered long and faithful service within a variety of fields, which benefited the citizens of Hesse-Kassel. It could also be conferred for bravery when faced with danger.

The Medal was awarded from 1821 until 1832, when it was replaced by the Civil Merit Cross.

The Bronze Medal is a non-official grade and it was privately manufactured.
