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.
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.
