I know this might be a long shot....but I am searching for an overview of the ODM of Friedrich III Wilhelm Nikolaus von Preussen (Emperor Frederick). I know he probably got everything, but I would just like to know if there is an overview somewhere preferably but not necessarily with dates. Its for my book on the House Order of the Golden Lion I am preparing.

Interested in the progress of my projects? Please check my website davidmueldner.wordpress.com

Have a great sunday

Here is his entries from the 1886/87 Court and State Handbook and the 1888 rank list. I suppose he might have gotten other awards between thess publications and his death, but this should be a start. He also certainly had a bunch of commemorative medals and the like which aren't included in rank lists and court and state handbooks. I'm not sure where you'd find a list of those.

Thanks Dave

in most lists I use as sources for the biographical entries for my book, commemorative medals are not listed. I think I will have no other option as to mention this in the preface. Sorry to see the CHLO has become a GHgL, referring to the grandducal hessians rather than the churhessians he originally got it from. Its no suprise though, I knew the order was taken over by the other hessians :-)

To refresh the topic a bit... Does anybody know when exactly the Kronprinz received all his Pour le merite orders? I am especially interested in the Grand Cross. In different sources I found either 1866 or 1873. As far as I could recall it was already after the Franco-Prussian War. Not to mention that nobody gave the daily date.


Thanks for the response.

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
