History note

The Wilhelm Cross was established on September 13, 1915 in four classes/divisions: the Wilhelm Cross (for merit in war in the homeland), the Wilhelm Cross (for other merit), the Wilhelm Cross with Swords, and the Wilhelm Cross with Swords and Crown. The Wilhelm Cross ranked after orders but ahead of the Merit Cross and all other Württemberg decorations. The two versions of the Wilhelm Cross without Swords were for civilian merit in connection with the war effort or otherwise, while the Wilhelm Cross with Swords was intended to reward non-combat merit by Württemberg soldiers. The Wilhelm Cross with Swords and Crown was a higher grade of the Wilhelm Cross with Swords and, like the Iron Cross 1st Class was a pin-back decoration. Dr. Klietmann (pour le merite) gives the following award numbers: Wilhelm Cross without swords (1,943), Wilhelm Cross with Swords (5,329), and Wilhelm Cross with Swords and Crown (108).
