English: This monument to Philip IV of Spain (1605–1665) is at the Plaza de Oriente (a square beside the Royal Palace) in Madrid (Spain). It was inaugurated in 1843. The bronze equestrian statue was made between 1634 and 1640 by Pietro Tacca (1577–1640), who requested Galileo Galilei's advice to achieve its stability: rear part is solid and front is hollow. The statue was initially in the Buen Retiro Palace.
