Gilnean Cross of Valor


Liam's Cross is a newer medal of honor rewarded by the Kingdom of Gilneas. Created following the Siege of Orgrimmar by King Genn Greymane in memory of his son, Liam Greymane, the medal replaced the Gilnean Cross of Valor as the highest military honor obtainable within the kingdom. Unawarded for some time, the medal was reserved for those whose bravery and commitment to the cause of the Kingdom of Gilneas on the frontlines and at home were unquestionable, and for remarkable bravery beyond the call of duty. The cross was first rewarded following the first excursion into the Blightlands to the inner circle of the Blades of Greymane. As with its predeccesor, the medal is exclusively awarded by the King. The medal has been shown to have a significant importance on aid to the home front (being that of Gilneas) rather than fronts outside, such as Draenor (though it still requires efforts outside of the region). Its awarding counts more recent efforts rather than past ones, resulting in a later awarding to several high ranking officials of the Gilnean Liberation Front, such as Darius and Lorna Crowley. This emphasis on newer movements is due to the more recent claims to Gilneas as of Garrosh's downfall.

The cross has been since criticized due to the importance placed upon it, to replace that of the Gilnean Cross of Valor as highest honor, only to be rewarded en masse to a group. At the same time, others have claimed it should be liberally rewarded to those who have continued on the home front. It has been rewarded scarcely since the first presentation to the group and it is theorized it will be retired following the restoration of the Kingdom of Gilneas.
