The ribbon of the order

The Saxe-Ernestine House Order (German: Sachsen-Ernestinischer Hausorden)[1] was an order of merit instituted by Duke Friedrich of Saxe-Altenburg, Duke Ernst I of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, and Duke Bernhard II of Saxe-Meiningen on 25 December 1833 as a joint award of the Saxon duchies.[2]


At first, the Order consisted of five classes: Grand Cross, Commander's Cross with Star in First and Second Classes, and Knight's Cross in First and Second Classes. Awards were reserved for officers.[3]

In 1864, a silver-gilt medal was added but subsequently suppressed in 1918, at the end of World War I.[4] Gold and silver medals were also associated with the Order.

Saxe-Coburg-Gotha revival (2006)

In 2006, the head of the ducal family of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, Prince Andreas, created the "Ducal Saxe-Coburg-Gotha House Order" (Herzoglich Sachsen-Coburg-Gotha'sche Hausorden).[1] It is based on the old Ducal Saxe-Ernestine House Order.
