History


The original decoration was founded by Grand Duke Carl Friedrich in 1834, and it was awarded to all members of the Saxe-Weimar military, with no consideration of rank, in the form of a cross.

The cross was awarded to all military ranks in recognition of long, faithful, and meritorious service for periods of 20 and 10 years.

The years employed during actual wartime counted double towards the number of years served by the recipient.
