History


The House Order was jointly founded by Duke Friedrich of Saxe-Altenburg, Duke Ernst I of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, and Duke Bernhard Erich II of Saxe-Meiningen to commemorate their shared ancestor Duke Ernest of Saxony-Gotha.

The House Order Medals of Merit were primarily awarded to civil servants and members of the founding families in recognition of loyalty and exceptional services rendered to the houses, but it was also conferred upon foreigners and citizens of the founding duchies.

The Type VI medals feature the hallmark "990, SILVER" or "990 SILVER".

The Type IV Gold Medals could feature additional clasps on the ribbon, including swords, and a clasp reading "1914". The clasps add value to the medal.
