King Frederick William III of Prussiaestablished it on 17 March 1813 during theNapoleonic Wars(EK 1813). The award was backdated to the birthday (10 March) of his late wife,Queen Louise.
The Iron Cross was a military decoration founded by King Friedrich Wilhelm III of Prussia, and it was awarded for acts of heroism, bravery, and exemplary leadership. A politically charged symbol, the cross is representative of Prussia's departure from Napoleonic rule.
The cross was primarily a military decoration, yet on numerous occasions it was awarded to civilians for services rendered to the military. The concept was originally conceived in 1806, and finally confirmed in mid February of 1813. The II Class was inherited in March 1814. By the time soldiers moved into Paris, on March 30, 1814, 6,639 II Class Iron Crosses had already been awarded. At this time, the cross was considered a ‘dead hero’s’ award, and was awarded in numbers to strengthen the ties to theking without depleting the value of the cross itself. In 1815, publications of the Iron Cross on flags and other equipment became common.
