    In the place of democracy between Weimar Castle, Anna Amalien Library and Franz Liszt Academy of Music stands the bronze equestrian monument of Weimar's most famous prince, Grand Duke Carl-August von Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach. His mother Duchess Anna Amalia and he founded the Weimar Classics by attracting important intellectuals of the time. Carl August became the most important friend and patron of Goethe. He himself was a bit coarser than his favorite, loved hunting, liked to play with peasant girls, and felt comfortable in Prussian military service, since he could not afford himself a large army.
