Founded by edict of Queen Elspeth at her coronation. This was explicitly designed as a "catch-all" award to cover situations in which the Queen felt that no other award would be appropriate. This was in response to several awards Elspeth had seen over her long experience in which the statutes were "bent" or compromised to fit. The QHD is given entirely at the Queen's whim, for any act, series of acts, or pattern of behavior she herself feels moved to recognize. Recommendations are neither solicited nor accepted, and there are no quantity limits per individual or per reign. The token is traditionally, but not necessarily, crafted by the Queen's own hand. --Steffan ap Kennydd 18:28, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
