This mosaic on the Karolinengasse 31 (4. District) shows Leopold der Glorreiche (Leopold the Glorious). He ruled as Duke of Austria from 1198 to 1230. This mosaic situated in the district Wieden reminds of the fact that the name of the district was first mentioned in a deed of donation by Leopold (‘Vulgariter widem dicitur…’) in 1211.
