History


The Order was founded by King George V of Hanover on December 15, 1865, in commemoration of his father, Ernest Augustus I of Hanover, and was conferred upon citizens of Hanover to recognize civil or military merit.

After the Prussian annexation of Hanover and the dissolution of Hanoverian Orders, the Order of Ernst August began to be awarded as a House Order.

The reverse of the cross of the Order features the royal cipher of the King that conferred the award.

409 II Class Knight Crosses were awarded.
