Militairy Order of Charles Fredric

Recommended Posts

He received the order twice.

Commanderkreuz on 18.8.1849, received on 27.10.1849, as Chief of the General Staff of the II.Korps of the Operationsarmee.

Großkreuz on 18.10.1867 as General der Infanterie and Kriegsminister.

So the Commander's Cross for killing Badeners and the Grand Cross for a career of killing Prussia's enemies. He was Kriegsminister from 1859 to 1873, so the Grand Cross was probably not for anything specific, but more likely a courtesy award for his role in the reconciliation between Baden and Prussia after the 1866 war, in which Baden had been on Austria's side.
