National Kaiser Wilhelm Monument

The National Kaiser Wilhelm Monument was a memorial structure in Berlin dedicated to Wilhelm I, first Emperor of Imperial Germany. It stood in front of the Berlin Palace from 1897 through 1950, when both structures were demolished by the German Democratic Republic government.
The monument featured an imposing equestrian statue of Emperor Wilhelm I. The memorial was built in front of the Eosander portal on the west side of the Berlin Palace. The design of the memorial was commissioned by Wilhelm I's grandson, Kaiser Wilhelm II, in the Baroque Revival style and cast by the sculptor Reinhold Begas, who had also designed the Siegesallee and the Bismarck Memorial in Tiergarten.
The planned Monument to Freedom and Unity is to be located on the base originally constructed for the monument.
