Pour le Mérite

The Pour le Mérite known as the Blue Max (German: Blauer Max), was the German Kingdom of Prussia's highest order of merit. It was awarded strictly as a recognition of extraordinary personal achievement, rather than as a general marker of social status or a courtesy-honour, although certain restrictions of social class and military rank were applied. The award was given as both a military (1740–1918) and civil honour (1740–1810, after 1842 as a separate class). It was last awarded 2 September 1918
