Triumphal Arch

Innsbruck, Austria

Situated at the south end of Maria-Theresien Straße, the Triumphal Arch, modeled after roman archetypes, was built by Empress Maria Theresa on occasion of the marriage of her son, the Duke of Tuscany, later Emperor Leopold II, to Maria Ludovica from Spain. The marble reliefs were created by Balthasar Moll in 1744. The ones on the south side show Leopold and his bride Ludovika, the ones on the north show Empress Maria Theresia and her beloved husband, Francis I Stephen of Lothringen, who sadly died during the celebrations.
