In consequence of the elevation of the Electorate of Hanover to a Kingdom by the Prince Regent George (1762-1830, Prince Regent from 1811 until 1820, King George IV since 1820) in the name of his father George III, King of Great Britain and Ireland, Elector of Hanover (1738-1820, reigned since 1760), he also instituted on August 12, 1815, the Royal Guelphic Order as a three-class (Knight Grand Cross, Knight Commander and Knight) order for civil and military merit. Thus, it was a royal order within the British system of orders of chivalry. With the end of the personal union between Great Britain and Hanover by the death of King William IV (1765-1837, reigned since 1830), the last male British Sovereign of the House of Hanover on the British throne, in 1837, the order in 1837 became a pure Hanoverian order under the reign of King Ernest [Ernst] August of Hanover (1771-1851, reigned since 1837). In 1841 new statutes were published. In 1866, due to the Prussian annexation of Hanover in 1866, the now four-class (de facto five classes - Grand Cross, Commander 1st and 2nd class, Knight and Member with a Silver Cross) order was abolished by the Prussian Government.
According to Klenau (in GK2 page II-220) between 1835 and 1865 only 59 1st-class military commanders were conferred to Hanoverians and 67 to foreigners.

After the unification of the United Markgravates Brandenburg-Bayreuth and Brandenburg-Ansbach with the Kingdom of Prussia in 1792, also the Brandenburg Order of the Red Eagle [Brandenburgischer Orden vom Roten Adler] became, according to the suggestion of Carl August Freiherr von Hardenberg (1750-1822, since 1814 Fürst von Hardenberg), a one-class royal Prussian order (1st model). In 1810, during the reign of King Friedrich Wilhelm III (1770-1840, reigned since 1797), new statutes were issued, thus transforming the order into a three-class (1st to 3rd class, with annexed gold and silver medal) order for civil and military merit, the insignia showing a red eagle to the left (the so called Brandenburg eagle) without the Hohenzollern shield on the chest (2nd model). The first class, to be worn with a sash ribbon, was conferred with an embroidered breast star. But as a matter of fact, there exist embroidered breast stars with eagles turned sideways without and with the Hohenzollern shield on the chest, and it cannot be said if the latter ones belong to the 1st or to the 2nd model.
Due to the fact that embroidered breast stars were quite difficult to handle, especially for military officers, holders of the 1st class were allowed to order and buy at their own cost privately manufactured metal breast stars from jewellers, so-called Juweliers-Anfertigungen [jeweller’s manufacturings]. Of them exist as well pieces without and with Hohenzollern shields on the chest of the eagle. (See also KB3 pages 84 to 87.)

Instituted on December 25, 1833, as originally four-class (Grand Cross, Commander 1st and 2nd class and Knight, with affiliated Cross of Merit and Medal of Merit), joint house order for civil and military merit by Friedrich, Duke of Saxe-Altenburg (1763-1834, reigned since 1787), Ernst, Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (1784-1844, reigned since 1806), and Bernhard II, Erich Freund, Duke of Saxe-Meiningen (1800-1882, reigned from 1803 until1866), in commemoration of the Order of the German Honesty [Orden der Teutschen Redlichkeit], instituted in 1690 by Duke Friedrich of Saxe-Gotha-Altenburg (1646-1691, reigned since 1675). Every Duchy had its own type of insignia, showing the reigning duke’s cipher on the upper cross arm (1st model). In 1864 this differentiation was abolished, and so the insignia were standardized, and the collar of the order, the Knights Cross 2nd class and the Gold Medal for Merit were introduced (2nd model). As the order was a house order of the Saxe-Ernestine Ducal families, also after the collapse of monarchy, Duke Carl Eduard of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (1884-1954, reigned from 1905 until 1918) continued to confer it until 1935, when the bestowals were prohibited by the German Government. Today the order is awarded again as a house order by the Prince and head of the ducal family of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, probably only in its Grand Cross class, at an unknown date upon King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden (born 1946, reigning since 1973).

(~€ 1’870/USD 2’200)

The order’s statutes of December 25, 1833, in article 14 clearly define that the insignia conferred for military merit should bear laurel wreaths around the centre and crossed swords through the centre. Despite this prescription, in all classes some insignia for military merit were conferred only with laurel wreath, but without crossed swords through the centre. There is no prescriptive evidence for this practice. It can only be speculated that these crosses from an unknown date were conferred upon commissioned officers who did not win it for service in direct war action.
