History


This Medal was founded by Duke Friedrich August I in commemoration of the Battle of Waterloo, and it was awarded to the Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers, and enlisted men who participated in the battle.

A smaller version of the Silver Medal was instituted in 1817 to be worn by off-duty recipients.

The stamp for the medal was designed by Johann Lindenschmit.
