HISTORY:
The Decoration was instituted on 27 January 1839 by Grand Duke Leopold and was awarded as a general service medal and for specific campaigns. On 7 September 1866 Grand Duke Friedrich I instructed that, in the latter case, ribbon bars were awarded to denote the campaign concerned and there were 18 different bars in all. It was awarded retrospectively for campaigns as far back as the Napoleonic Wars of 1805 and was last issued in 1871
