Maria Theresa Monument
Neuer Platz, Klagenfurt

Staring out onto Neuer Platz, this monument was the first to be dedicated to the Empress Maria Theresia, Queen of the Hapsburg Austria Empire who reigned for fourty years from 1740. Erected in 1765 this large statue was originally a lead sculpture of considerable artistic value but was replaced in 1873 by a bronze effigy. Theresia brought unity to the Habsburgs and was considered one of its most competent rulers hence why, on the southern side of the base, the inscription "In Memory of the Great Empress" can be read.
