History


The Order was originally founded as a joint House Order by Prince Leopold III of Lippe-Detmold and Prince Adolf Georg I of Schaumburg-Lippe.

In 1890, the joint Order separated into two separate House Orders, resulting in the formal creation of the Princely House Order of Schaumburg-Lippe. This new Order continued to be awarded in recognition of meritorious and faithful civil and military service.

The Order crosses that were awarded for military merit featured crossed swords, either through the centre of the cross or on the surmounting ring.
