Gilded badge of Order and. Sash of the Order of the White Eagle. The Order of the White Eagle (Russian: Order of the White Eagle) was an Imperial Russian Order based on the Polish honor. Emperor Nicholas I of Russia established the award in 1831 as the Imperial and Royal Order of the White Eagle. A recipient of the Order was granted the title Knight of the Order of the White Eagle.
The Order of the White Eagle was officially "annexed" by Nicholas I on 17 November 1831 and became part of the Russian Imperial Order. Among the first recipients of the Imperial Order of the White Eagle were Ivan Paskevich and Pyotr Petrovitch Palen, recognised for their part in suppressing the Polish uprising.
The new design featured significant alterations: the badge was now of gold and red enamel; on the front, the original red maltese cross and white eagle were reduced in size and superimposed over the double-headed eagle of the Russian Empire. The back of the badge featured the original Polish badge design, superimposed over the Russian imperial eagle.
The star now featured the Russian royal crown. On 25 January 1832, a blue ribbon and sash were introduced.
The Order of the White Eagle was given a high status in the hierarchy of distinction, ranked only behind the Order of Saint Andrew, the Order of Saint Catherine (for women only) and the Order of Saint Alexander Nevsky. As the top three awards were named after Russian Orthodox saints, the Order of the White Eagle was the preferred award to bestow upon non-Christians.
