    The square was built from 1688 to plans by Johann Arnold Nering as part of Friedrichstadt, the Elector Frederick III., The future King Frederick I in Prussia, end of the 17th Century had created. In this historic district, a large part of the French immigrants (Huguenots) settled on which the Great Elector Friedrich Wilhelm of Brandenburg with the Edict of Potsdam in 1685 had promised the protection of their religious freedom and full citizenship.King Frederick I assigns both the Lutheran and the French Reformed congregation ever a place on the square to the church: in the north for the French Friedrichstadtkirche and in the south for the German Church. Both churches were built after 1701 initially without the later attached towers.Its shape was given the place under Frederick II (Frederick the Great) with the two identical domed towers next to the churches. They were built in the years 1780-1785 to plans by Carl von Gontard. As a model for the redesign is often mentioned the Piazza del Popolo in Rome, but Laurenz Demps doubts thisSource:
