Circular gilt bronze medal with loop for ribbon suspension; the face with the head of Duke Ernst Gunther of Schleswig-Holstein facing right, circumscribed ‘ERNST GÜNTHER HERZOG ZU SCHLESWIG-HOLSTEIN’; the reverse with the crowned ducal arms, oak branches to either side, dated ‘11.AUG.1913’ and circumscribed ‘ZUM 50. GEBURTSDAG D. HERZOGS Z. SCHLESWIG-HOLSTEIN’; on replaced correct ribbon, slightly short at the back. The medal was instituted in 1913 to mark the 50th birthday of Duke Ernst Gunther on 11 August and issued in silver and in gilt bronze to officials and employees then working on the Duke’s entailed estates at Primkenau in Silesia. Duke Ernst Gunther was born in 1863 and inherited his father’s title on 14 January 1880, though Prussia had assumed all real power in the Duchy after the wars with Denmark of 1864 and Austria of 1866. Incidentally, Ernst Gunther’s sister Auguste Viktoria married Wilhelm II of Prussia and was the last Empress of German and Queen of Prussia. Ernst Gunther built Schloss Primkenau in 1896-1897 and it was ready for his birthday on 11 August 1897. He married Princess Dorothea of Saxe-Goburg and Gotha in 1898 but the marriage was childless. He died at Primkenau on 21 February 1921. The house was destroyed in 1945. Primkenau is now in western Poland and renamed Przemkòw. The estate is today Przemków Landscape Park (Przemkowski Park Krajobrazowy), a protected area with four nature reserves. A very good example of an extremely rare medal.
