    The Maria-Theresien-Denkmal is the most important monument of the Habsburg monarchy in Vienna. It is reminiscent of Maria Theresa, Archduchess of Austria, wife and since 1765 Empress Dowager of Emperor Francis I Stephen of Lorraine. It governed the Habsburg monarchy from 1740 to 1780. The monument stands since 1888 on the Maria Theresa Square on the Vienna Ring Road between the former court museums, opened in 1891 Kunsthistorisches Museum and the 1889 opened Natural History Museum, against the background of the then royal stables , today's Museum Quarter. The Ensemble Memorial, accompanied by the Triton and Najaden Fountains, is a World Heritage Site Historic Center of Vienna (Wikipedia).

    Maria-Theresien-Platz is located in Vienna, in the 1st district, on the Ringstrasse, across from Heldenplatz and Hofburg. It is framed by the city's two largest historical museum buildings, the former court museums, the Kunsthistorisches Museum and the Naturhistorisches Museum. The museum quarter on the other side of the double line parallel to the ring forms the visual conclusion. In the middle of the square is the Maria Theresa monument, the largest Habsburg monument in Vienna.
