AUSTRIA


EMPIRE OF AUSTRIA (1804-1918)

  Austrian Orders and Decorations - Part I

Ortner, Dr. M. Christian, and Ludwigstorff, Dr. Georg:
Austrian Orders and Decorations - Part I: The Imperial-Royal Orders up to 1918.
Vienna 2017.
In English language, size 29.5 × 26 cm, 832 pages in two volumes, with more than 2,500 colour and black-and-white photographs, cloth-bound hardcover with dust jacket, in card slipcase, weight 5 kg.

The orders and decorations of Old Austria are a fascinating field of study and research to this day, not only reflecting the continuity and turning points of the Habsburg Monarchy from the middle of the 18th century to the end of 1918, but also constituting a direct link with the medieval secular and chivalric orders and their extremely ideological and spiritual character, particularly through the Order of the Golden Fleece. The orders founded in the 18th and 19th centuries later also took into account a recipient’s achievements but they still largely retained the nature of fellowships, loyal to their sovereign and ruler. Although these ‘orders’ were originally intended only for certain social and professional groups, throughout the 19th century the system of awards was increasingly expanded, with decorations commemorating various historical events or personages and later honouring general merit, military achievement or long service. This resulted in a system that was not only comprehensive but complex and had its own peculiar characteristics, distinct from those of other nations. There were for example privileges and monetary gratuities as well as ennoblement attached to some awards, a recipient’s social background was taken into account and there was a strict hierarchy amongst the orders and decorations themselves. This two-volume work, apart from dealing with the cultural and historical background, focuses in detail on the decorations themselves. They are shown here, in previously unpublished abundance, in a monograph of 832 pages with more than 2,500 photographs and illustrations. This part I of the planned series deals with the Order of the Golden Fleece, the Military Order of Maria Theresa, the Order of St. Stephen, the Order of Leopold, the Order of the Iron Crown, the Order of the Starry Cross, the Order of Elisabeth and the Order of the Slaves of Virtue.
