This Order became a Russian Order after the Polish Rebellion of 1830, when Polish forces were suppressed. It was adopted as a Russian Order in 1831.

The version with an eagle was awarded to Non-Christians, and the version with swords was awarded to military personnel.

The obverse features an inscription, translated as "Encourages by Rewarding".

The earliest stars was embroidered in silver.
