History


This Medal is also known as the Waterloo Ducat 1815.

Shortly before his death at the Battle of Quatre Bras, Duke Wilhelm of Brunswick gave his sons, the Princes Carl and Wilhelm, eight Dutch coins as a token of his appreciation. Following the Battle of Waterloo, the Princes sent these coins to the command of the Brunswick Ducal Corps and they were to be conferred upon Non-Commissioned Officers and enlisted men who had distinguished themselves in battle. The coins were given to five Non-Commissioned Officers and three enlisted men.

In 1834, Duke Wilhelm August of Brunswick ordered that the surviving recipients return the coins to the state. In return, the surviving recipients were given the II Class Merit Medal of the Order of Henry the Lion.
