Hi, I am also looking for a recipient of a medal from the Franco Prussian War. Family history states that my great grandfather, Ludwig Zarth, was with Kaiser Wilhelm I when he took Paris and knew him personally. Also, Ludwig was a honor guard with the Prussian Army at Fontenbleau, Paris. Supposedly, there are pictures of Ludwig wearing his medal. I am not sure what medal he received. He was born in 1849 in Prussia and died in 1935, in Scott Cty. Minnesota. I am interested in any info you might have or where I can find detailed info on the Franco Prussian War.
