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.

After the death of Grand Duke Carl Alexander in 1901 his successor, Grand Duke Wilhelm Ernst, replaced the obverse monogram of the Type III decorations with his initials "W.E.".

The bar was awarded to Non-Commissioned Officers and enlisted men in recognition of long, faithful, and meritorious service.

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