History


The Order was established by Francis V of Austria-Este, the Duke of Modena and Reggio, in 1855, and it was abolished soon after in 1861.

This Order was conferred upon civilians and military personnel in recognition of meritorious service and loyalty to the Duke. It could also be awarded to foreign recipients.

When the Order was awarded for civil merit the awards feature an oak wreath suspension.

When the Order was awarded for military merit the awards feature a trophy of arms suspension.

When the Order was awarded to foreigners the awards feature a gold crown suspension.

After the original recipient died, his heirs were required to return the Order awards to the Chancellery of the Order.
