History


The Medal was jointly founded by the three Hanseatic cities of Bremen, Lübeck and Hamburg, and was conferred upon the soldiers who served in the Hanseatic Legion during the campaigns of 1813 and 1814. It was also conferred upon individuals who served in the Lübeck’s citizen’s militia.

In 1813, the Hanseatic Legion was established by a group of Hamburg citizens, with the aim of fighting in the War of the Sixth Coalition. Shortly after its formation, volunteers from Lübeck and Bremen joined. The troop was composed of around 3,800 volunteers, which included Officers, doctors and military officials.

Each city officially instituted the Medal on different dates.
