Franz Joseph I of Austria

Pour le mérite am: 27 August 1917 (Oak Leaves also awarded on the same date)

He was awarded the Pour le Mérite with Oakleaves as a gesture of goodwill and as a traditional medal exchange between himself and Kaiser Wilhelm II. There were very few Pour le Mérite awards with Oakleaves given to foreigners during the war.
