12 Palatine Lion Statue in Heidelberg, Germany

From 1085 until 1803, there was a state of the Holy Roman Empire in southwest Germany called the Country Palatine of the Rhine which was ruled by counts and princes. The Electoral Palatine was the first to use this crowned and armed lion as part of their coat of arms. It still is a central element of the Heidelberg flag. This lion statue stands on top of a fountain at Universitätsplatz or University Square.
