Footnote: This Order was founded by King Frederick I in 1748. It is still technically a Swedish Order, but it has not been awarded since 1975. It was conferred upon Swedish military personnel for long and meritorious service. At the time of its creation the Order was composed of only two grades, the I Class Commander and the I Class Knight. The Commander Grand Cross was created in 1772, the II Class Commander was created in 1873, and the II Class Knight was created in 1889.
