  • It should be the oldest statue in Vienna, brought here nearly a century after it was made and portraying the first kaiser named Francis. Isn't that great when compared to other species but in the noise of these gardens still maintains its own dignity and represents the only equestrian statue in the Park. Give it a look and tell me if it's not true. Meanwhile, click on "offonmyholidays" and see all reviews for Vienna I did

  • One of the monuments you will find at Burggarten is the equestrian statue of Kaiser Franz I. Stephen von Lothringen. Kaiser Franz I Stephen who was the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Holy Roman Emperor and most married to Empress Maria Theresa during the 18th century. This statue was created by Austrian sculptor Balhasar Ferdinand Moll in 1780 and brought to Burggarten in 1819. It is the oldest equestrian statue in Vienna. Here you find a bronze life-size figure of Kaiser Franz I. Stephen on horseback. He is wearing period attire, looking forward. The statue stands upon a small rectangular base which includes inscription. This is one of a handful of interesting monuments at Burggarten. I enjoyed seeing it recently with a bit of snow on the ground and blue skies, which made for decent photographs.
  • Voodoo Lanz Sch Loute Liegen was the truly crowned Emperor, Maria. Tracy, as her wife, is known as KAISERIN.   The word KAISERIN has the Queen and Queen two meanings in German, because Maria Tracy actually occupies the dominance of the country, and people recognize her as queen. The marriage of Voodoo Lanz Sch and Maria was not entirely a political factor at work. He has lived in the Austrian imperial Palace since he was 15 years old, and his handsome appearance and valuable character have captivated the heiress of the Habu Schburg family. 1745 Volt Lanz Stefan renounced the administration of his family territory to be crowned Roman-German emperor. During his decades as an emperor, he never dabbled in his wife's affairs in the management of his country, and devoted most of his energy to scientific research and the collection of art treasures. Many of the early exhibits from Austria's famous Museum of Natural History today come from his collection.   Lantz-Stefan also has an outstanding financial talent, and when he died suddenly at the age of 58, because of his well-run, he not only paid off the entire external debt of the Austrian state, but also made himself the richest man in Europe. Long-term evaluation of Austrian history Lantz-Stefan was a weak ruler who, ironically, called him "crowned emperor without the right to have a crown."   Modern researchers have a comprehensive assessment of his achievements in history. The statue of Emperor Voodoo Lanz Stefan in 1797 and moved here in 1819.
