Thank you. I'm surprised no other members of the forum have at least some sort of list of his awards.

Below some more photos I found.

Great find with him in his admirals uniform, I still believe more research into that photo of his funeral would be the where the answer to your question. The sad fact is that most of these photos of him are to low quality, anyways here’s another photo.image.jpeg.5f6dccceeff4a1ab6d88bf4bdae3dd8d.jpeg

On this photo he is wearing a Russian uniform (so is the man behind in the middle). The sash (and upper star) is of the Order of St. Andrew.

According to The Titled Nobility of Europe (1914), the Großherzog was the knight of the following orders:

  • Black Eagle of Prussia
  • St. Hubert of Bavaria
  • St. Andrew of Russia
  • Annunciation of Italy
  • Elephant of Denmark
  • Rue Crown of Saxony
  • Grand Cross of the Victorian Order of Great Britain (1907).
