The order of Dannebrog was established on October 12, 1671 by King Christian V (1646-1699, reigned since 1670) as a renovation of an older order of knighthood, established by King Waldemar II (1170-1241, reigned since 1202) in 1219. Originally consisting of only one class, King Frederik VI of Denmark and Norway (1768-1839, reigned since 1808) enlarged the order on June 28, 1808, to four classes. Further amendments were instituted by the succeeding kings until present days.
There exist two types of collars for the order before 1808 and for the Grand Crosses after 1808, the longer ones consisting of 32 „cross“-, 16 „W“- and 16 „C5“ links, and the shorter ones consisting of 26 „cross“-, 13 „W“- and 13 „C5“ links.
