Fryderyk August I

As a result of Napoleonic victories defeated Russia and Austria had to cede the territories they had gained after the third partition and a new state was formed: the Grand-Duchy of Warsaw with Frederick August 1st of Saxony as Duke. This made him the second Grand Master of the Order of St. Stanislas.
At that time a second white stripe was added to the single original stripe on the two borders of the red ribbon.

Alexander I of Russia

1815 the Congress of Vienna dissolved the Grand Duchy of Warsaw and created the Kingdom of Poland in personal union with the Russian Empire.
Thus made Emperor Alexander I of Russia the third Grand Master of the Order of St Stanislas.
