History


This 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 IV Gold Medals may have also featured clasps on the ribbon including, "1916", "1917", "1918", "1914" with swords, "1914/5" with swords, "1914/6" with swords, "1914/7" with swords, "1914/8" with swords, "1914/18" with swords, and "1918" with swords.

There may be versions of the Type IV Gold Medal composed of Bronze gilt.
