One of my Swedish great-grandfathers got the King's Medal from Oscar II in the late 1800s for work he did on restoring a major church. You see him here.
The other great-grandfather got the Order of the Vasa, presumably for work he did with the Swedish Railways.
Can any Swedes or other experts tell me which would have been considered a greater honor?
