Monument
The equestrian statue of Friedrich Wilhelm III, King of Prussia (1770 – 1840) stands on Cologne’s Heumarkt square. Friedrich Wilhelm III succeeded his father, Friedrich Wilhelm II, to the Prussian throne in 1797. Friedrich Wilhelm III died in June 1840 and was succeeded by his oldest son, Friedrich Wilhelm IV.

The statue was dedicated by representatives of the citizenry of Cologne in September 1878. In October 2009 the equestrian statue was returned to its place on the Heumarkt after lengthy restoration work.
