Annotation

The Neo-Baroque statue was made for the town of Senta (Serbia) but the town could not afford its price. The monument was bought in 1900 as a temporary solution until the planned equestrian statue of King Franz Joseph was completed. This never happened so Prince Eugen remained on his plinth.
