The order was created by King Leopold II on 24 August 1900, destined to recognise exceptional military and civilian service to the Congo, of which he was sovereign. In 1908 when the Congo became a Belgian Colony, the Order became an Order of the Kingdom of Belgium and was awarded for service in either country.
