History


The Medal was instituted by King Ernst August and was conferred upon individuals who demonstrated their loyalty and patriotism by voluntarily enlisting in the King’s German Legion.

The King’s German Legion was a British Army unit formed after the dissolution of the Electorate of Hanover in 1803, and it was composed primarily of expatriate Germans. The Legion fought as part of the British Army in the Napoleonic Wars (1804-1815), and participated in campaigns, such as the Walcheren Campaign (1809), the Campaign of the Hundred Days (1815) and the Peninsular War (1807-1815). The Legion was disbanded in 1816.
