depiction of ...
The former Siegesallee in Berlin with the double statue commemorating the corulers of Brandenburg, Margrave John I (1213-1266) and Margrave Otto III (ca. 1215-1267), sons of Albert II and grandchildren of Otto II. The bust on the left commemorates Provost Simeon of Cölln, that on the right Marsilius de Berlin, the first documented "Schulze" (mayor) and judge of Berlin. Sculptor: Max Baumbach. The sculpture was unveiled on 22 March 1900. Spread across the knees of John I is the document granting town charters to Berlin and Cölln. The younger Otto III stands beside him, pointing to the charter with one arm while the other rests on a hunting spike. The youthful city founders are portrayed here as mature men, because in the view of contemporaries the significance of founding the later metropolis would not have been adequately manifested as an act of two youngsters.
