Cross of Merit for Women and Girls
This award (Verdienstkreuz für Frauen und Jungfrauen), similar in design to the Iron Cross but additionally adorned with a red cross symbol and a crown on the reverse, was intended as a corresponding decoration for women. Recipients were honoured at the request of Empress Augusta, the wife of the now-Kaiser Wilhelm I. Her monogram also appears on the reverse. The award was instituted in 1871 to commemorate the Franco-Prussian war of 1870/1. The majority of the recipients appear to be royals and the wives and daughters of the aristocracy; also honoured were women who had cared for the wounded during the war.
