History:
instituted by Adolf Hitler on the 1st May 1937, the Order of the German Eagle (Verdienstorden vom Deutschen Adler) Eagle was a diplomatic and honorary award given to prominent foreigners, particularly diplomats, who were considered sympathetic to NSDAP.

In addition to awards to non-Germans, the Reich Foreign Minister and the Reich Protector of Bohemia and Moravia received a 'Special Degree' (Sonderstufe), with identical insignia to the Grand Cross of the Order. Accordingly, Foreign Minister Constantin von Neurath, received the Special Degree of the Order, with a further award to Joachim von Ribbentrop on his appointment as Foreign Minister in 1938. In 1943 Dr.Wilhelm Frick received the Special Degree after becoming Reich Protector of Bohemia and Moravia.
