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