Order of Merit

The Order of Merit has been instituted along with the Royal Order

“Saint Alexander” and for about two years it has existed as a medal,

associated with the above order. It has been used to decorate military men

instead of the silver Medal of merit. In 1883, the decoration has officially

been converted to an order, associated with the more senior Order of St Alexander.

There was one single class during this period,

and it was referred to as the Order of Merit.


Ever since its institution, the order has been a military decoration.

Theoretically though, after the introduction of the 1st class of the order,

the so called golden badge, the decoration could also be bestowed

upon non-army personnel – senior civil servants, cabinet ministers and alike.
