After planning several objects in the early-to-mid 19th century (Gasteig, Ludwigstraße and Nymphenburg), architect Leo von Klenz was commissioned by Ludwig I in 1846 to design a gateway for the western side of Königsplatz . His plans were brought to fruition in 1854-62. Lying in front of the central passage is a pediment with six Doric columns; within it are double rows of Ionic pillars and behind them is a wall inscribed with the names of Greek freedom fighters and the Bavarian troops who aided them in battle. Ludwig's son ruled Greece as Otto I (1833-62) following its liberation from the Ottoman Empire. The sculptures on the pediment were made according to plans drawn up by Ludwig von Schwanthaler. The western side depicts the Glorification of the Greek War of Independence, while the side facing the square feature s the Homage to King Otto of Greece.
