The Queen's Monument or Princess Monument on the edge of the Eilenriede in Hanover from the time of the German Empire at the beginning of the 20th century depicts the two princesses and later queens Luise of Prussia and Friederike of Hanover. Both were born in Hanover in the Old Palace opposite the Leine Castle as daughters of the later Duke of Mecklenburg-Strelitz Charles II. The sisters initially became princesses of Prussia through their double marriage to Crown Prince Friedrich Wilhelm (1770–1840) and Prince Friedrich Ludwig (1773–1796) in Berlin in 1793. A little later, from 1795 to 1797, the sculptor Johann Gottfried Schadow created the group of princesses that had previously been placed there for the Berlin Palace. This sculpture is now an exhibit in the Alte Nationalgalerie in Berlin. Through her third marriage to Ernst August I, Friederike became Queen of Hanover in 1837.
