Ernst August King of Hanover

The large equestrian statue of King Ernst August, erected in a square named after him in front of Hanover Central Station, is inscribed with his name and the words (in German) “To the father of the nation from his loyal people.” It is a popular meeting place; in the local phrase, people arrange to meet unterm Schwanz or “under the tail” (that is, of the horse which the King rides).
