The medal was established by personal decree of Emperor Nicholas I on January 22, 1850. This medal was issued to all military ranks - from general to soldier, who participated in the suppression of the Hungarian revolt in 1848-1849. Priests, officials, physicians and even non-combatant lower ranks who performed their duties in the troops who took part in hostilities against the rebels complained of the same medal. The events of 1848 swept like a mighty flurry across all the states of Europe from France to Russia itself. In Austria, government troops could no longer cope on their own with the rebels of Hungary and Transylvania, who had risen under the leadership of Lajos Kossuth and Sandor Petofi. Austrian absolutism was threatened with collapse and its government was forced to turn to Russia for military assistance. Nicholas I considered the events that took place there, as a direct threat to "their own home", on August 26, 1849, Russian troops were sent to Hungary under the command of General I.F. Paskevich. From Moldavia and Wallachia, another group of troops was introduced into Transylvania, in which Tsarevich Alexander (the future Tsar Alexander II) was also in the rank of "commander of the guards infantry corps." By the end of the year, the Hungarian Revolution was over. For that campaign, 212,330 people were "commended" with a new silver medal. They wore it on the chest, on the combined ribbon of the orders of the Saint. Andrew the First-Called and St. Vladimir. in which Tsarevich Alexander (future Tsar Alexander II) was also in the rank of "commander of the guards infantry corps". By the end of the year, the Hungarian Revolution was over. For that campaign, 212,330 people were "commended" with a new silver medal. They wore it on the chest, on the combined ribbon of the orders of the Saint. Andrew the First-Called and St. Vladimir. in which Tsarevich Alexander (future Tsar Alexander II) was also in the rank of "commander of the guards infantry corps." By the end of the year, the Hungarian Revolution was over. For that campaign, 212,330 people were "commended" with a new silver medal. They wore it on the chest, on the combined ribbon of the orders of the Saint. Andrew the First-Called and St. Vladimir.

A fantastic part of military history not to be missed at this low listing price. It would be extremely hard to find a much better example than these medals, medals weight a bit.
