    Ernst I, the Pious (born December 25, 1601 in Altenburg, † March 26, 1675 in Gotha). Builder of Friedenstein Castle, beginning in 1643, completed in 1654.
    On September 4, 1904, the larger than life bronze monument to Ernst the Pious was inaugurated on the square in front of the north side of Friedenstein Castle. The sculpture created by the Berlin sculptor Caspar Finkenberger shows the prince in iron armor and upright position with a Bible in his hands. A helmet at his feet is partially covered by his wide coat, which - like the armor - refers to Ernst's role as a colonel in the Thirty Years' War.

    Castle with park worth visiting. Part of the European nobility is associated with Gotha.

    With a view of the castle in the background, the monument is very well placed.
