History


This Order was founded by King John and it was generally conferred upon women in recognition of merit.

The Order was primarily awarded to women that had demonstrated self-sacrifice and altruism by caring for wounded soldiers during the Franco-German War of 1870/71.

The name of the Order commemorates Duchess Sidonie of Bohemia, the first wife of Duke Albert of Saxony.

The Cross was only awarded 72 times.
