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 Type IV decorations were founded by Grand Duke Wilhelm Ernst on December 20, 1913 with the new form of a cross and two medals.

The cross 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.
