Imperial Russian orders

Recommended Posts

I would very much like to check out if and when the Swedish diplomat and general Gustaf Carl Fredrik Löwenhielm (1771 - 1856) received the following orders:

Order of Saint Alexander Nevsky (I know there is a book with a list of recipients, but my Russian is extremely bad).

Order of Saint Anna

Order of Saint Vladimir

Anyone?

Order of Saint Anna 

Yes, he definitely was a cavalier of St.Anna order.

No exact date but here comes a little compensation. 

The very same breast star of St.Anna order that belonged to him.

This is his St. Vladimir order (no exact date but I think all these orders he recieved somewhere around 1813/1814)

This is defintely St.Vladimir (thanks to the portrait by Carl Vilhelm Nordgren).

No info about his Nevsky but I have a date for his order of St. George 4th class.

He received it "for distinctionsin the wars with Napoleon" on October 8, 1813 (No. 2712 according to the Grigorovich - Stepanov list of cavaliers).

Med vennlig hilsen,
