Generalarzt Friedrich „Fritz“ Wilhelm Karl von Ilberg

Recommended Posts

Here are the decorations for Generalarzt von Ilberg up until 1914, am I missing anything? I would love to know if he had wartime decorations. I would also love to know how long he served, because already in August 1914 he had health problems.

Dr Ilberg got his knights cross 1st class of Henry the Lion Order from Brunswick at 27th october 1899. He handed it back 1908 because he was promoted to a commanders cross on 17th december of 1905. Dr. Ilberg died 8th july 1916 and his decoration was sent back in 1918.

Great information, thank you! What I have always wanted to know, did the Ordenskanzlei use the decorations again, or were they saved in an archive? Thanks!

Normally the old orders were given back to the jeweller who supplied the Ordenzkanzlei, then the jeweller had to decide what to do, could the order be repaired with less effort than he would do so and the repaired order was awarded again. Is the order beyond repair he would melt it and use the gold or silver for other purposes. If the jeweller melted the old order, he gave the Ordenskanzlei a credit voucher for the next bill. The worth of old orders was written down in the treaty which the jeweller had signed with the Ordenskanzlei.

But if the returned orders did belonged to a very special and famous person, than it was kept. In my Book on the orders and medals of the Duchy of Brunswick I discribed the grand croos of the austrian emporer Franz Joseph which was returned in 1917. It was such a marvellous piece of art, that it was kept for the personal disposition of duke Ernst August. The grand cross set from GFM Moltke for example was kept and transferred to the Vaterländisches Museum where it still is. 

I hope that this answers your question.

Oh yes, you really did. Thanks for that! May I ask, what the name of your book is and if it is in German?

Hey Deutschritter, sure you can ask. My books are written in German, you may have a look inside here and you can only order them directly at the publishing company. You can PN me, if you are interested then we can arrange it. Only 25 sets are left then it is sold out and no reprint is planned so far.
