It seems like alot of awards were made on April 17th 1885. I believe the Swedish king made a state visit to Romania then.
IF your medalbar has a Order of the Sword it would probably be a Knight class, since the commander is a neck cross. I am working on the roll of recipients but it goes slowly. I have to many projects going.
I made a quick look in the Swedish state calendar of 1914 and found 12 romanians with the Knight 1st class.
I also cross checked the names in the Danish state calendar of 1914 and found the following with both Order of Sword and Dannebrogorden:
It is possible that I missed some or that the Dannebrogorden was awarded later. Or the ribbon is of something different than Swedish and Danish.
Peter, a very nice Godet set!!!
Congratulations and David M. might get jealous.
glass clear ID of a unique set of decorations.
Louis Müldner von Mülnheim,
he was born 1.4.1876 in Angermünde, died 26.4.1945 in Potsdam;
in 1914, Captain, Adjutant of the 4th Guards Infantry brigade, later Company Commander in RIR 261, followed by an assginment in the General Staff, in 1916 ...drumrolls...he became the Adjutant of the German Crown Prince, got promoted Major, after the war he still served as the Crown Princes Adjutant and Chef of his Court Administration.
Well the second one sems to be the HOH3X, we have some members here generating the list of all wearers of this one, so they should probably know the officiers from the Lippe states, who had them, this would be my start.
In the latest news I saw President Selensky with a stitched cross upon his t-shirt.
Could it be the (above mentioned) Cossack Cross?
Or is it just the cross of the Ukrainian Forces?
Thanks a lot!
Thank you a lot for your answer!
Indeed I agree with you that 9 ribbon seems to be of Danish Dannebrogorden because the white edge is narrow while Danilo Order would have a wider one.
Also the Swedish Order of Sword would go better with the Danish one even if the ribbon looks to be wrong but may be the wearer just put the closest ribbon he could find.
I did not know that there were a lot of Romanians who received the Order of Sword.
Could you please give some context how this could happen and if you are aware of some lists.
Thank you in advance,
