THE MILITARY ORDER OF THE GREAT MARTYR AND VICTOR, ST. GEORGE was founded by Catherine the Great, in four classes, on 26 November 1769. It was exclusively to officers for Meritorious Military Service, or for Bravery in Battle. The first class was normally reserved for successful Commanders-in-Chief and was only bestowed on twenty-five occasions. Amongst notable Russian recipients were General Orlov, Field Marshal Potemkin and General Barclay de Tolly. Wellington, Schwarzenberg, Bernadotte and Blucher were among a handful of foreign recipients.
