Kingdom of Belgium: Order of the Crown - Officer class with Gold Palms. Instituted: 15 October 1897, the Palms and Medals being added 25 June 1898.
The Order was established on October 15, 1897 by King Leopold II in his capacity as ruler of the Congo Free State. The order was first intended to recognize heroic deeds and distinguished service achieved for service in the Congo Free State—many of which acts soon became highly controversial. In 1908, the Order of the Crown was made a national honour of Belgium, junior to the Order of Leopold.
