George Smith Patton Jr. (November 11, 1885 - December 21, 1945) was a
General of the United States Army who commanded the U.S. Seventh Army in
the Mediterranean theater of World War II, and the U.S. Third Army in
France and Germany following D-Day, the Allied invasion of Normandy in June
1944.

During the Allied occupation of Germany Patton was named military governor
of Bavaria, but was relieved over his aggressive statements towards the
Soviet Union and trivializing denazification. He commanded the United
States Fifteenth Army for slightly more than two months. Severely injured
in an auto accident, he died in Germany twelve days later, on December 21,
1945.






This bronze statue was set up on William Square to pay tribute to the King
and Grand Duke William II of Nassau-Orange.

He ruled from 1840 to 1849 and, one year before his death, granted the
Grand Duchy its first parliamentary constitution, one of the most liberal
in Europe at the time.


The pedestal of the monument reveals the coat of arms of the House of
Orange-Nassau and of Luxembourg and the ones of the 12 cantons of
Luxembourg.

An accurate copy of the statue can be found in The Hague.
