Summary[edit]

Description
Español: Cuadriga de la Puerta de Brandenburg, Berlín, Alemania. La construcción de la puerta, que se realizó entre entre 1788 y 1791, fue orden del rey Federico Guillermo II de Prusia como símbolo de paz. Fue considerablemente dañada durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial y durante la división de Alemania tras la posguerra se hizo inaccesible al situarse el Muro de Berlín directamente frente a ella. Las cercanías de la puerta tuvieron una cobertura mediática importante durante la caída del muro en 1989 y la Reunificación de Alemania en 1990. Tras la derrota prusiana de 1806 en la Batalla de Jena, Napoleón fue el primero en utilizar la puerta en una procesión triunfal y se llevó la cuadriga a París. Tras la derrota de Napoleón en 1814 y la ocupación prusiana de París, la cuadriga se devolvió a Berlín y se rediseñó a un arco de triunfo prusiano. La puerta se restauró entre 2000 y 2002 en su aspecto actual.
English: Quadriga of the Brandenburg Gate, Berlin, Germany. The gate was commissioned by King Frederick William II of Prussia as a sign of peace and built between 1788 to 1791. It suffered considerable damage in World War II and during the post-war Partition of Germany, the gate was isolated and inaccessible immediately next to the Berlin Wall. The area around the gate was featured most prominently in the media coverage of the tearing down of the wall in 1989, and the subsequent German reunification in 1990. After the 1806 Prussian defeat at the Battle of Jena-Auerstedt, Napoleon was the first to use the Brandenburg Gate for a triumphal procession and took its Quadriga to Paris. After Napoleon's defeat in 1814 and the Prussian occupation of Paris the Quadriga was restored to Berlin and redesigned as a Prussian triumphal arch. The gate was restored from 2000 to 2002 to its current appearance.
Français : Quadrige de la porte de Brandebourg de Berlin, Allemagne. La porte a été commandée par le Roi Frederick William II de Prusse en signe de paix et construite entre 1788 à 1791. Elle a subi des dégâts considérables lors de la seconde guerre mondiale et durant la partition de l’Allemagne de l'après-guerre, la porte faisait partie intégrante du mur de Berlin. La chute du mur a eu lieu en 1989 et la réunification allemande en 1990. Après la défaite prussienne 1806 lors de la bataille d'Iéna, Napoléon était le premier à utiliser la Porte brandebourgeoise pour un cortège triomphal et a pris son Quadrige à Paris. Après la défaite de Napoléon en 1814 et l'occupation prussienne de Paris le Quadrige fit son retour à Berlin. La porte a été restaurée en arc de triomphe prussien. Entre 2000 et 2002 pour retrouver son aspect actuel.
Polski: Kwadryga na Bramie BrandenburskiejBerlinie, w Niemczech. Bramę zbudowano w latach 1788–1791 na zlecenie króla Fryderyka Wilhelma II Pruskiego jako symbol pokoju. Podczas II wojny światowej brama została poważnie zniszczona, a w czasie powojennego podziału Niemiec była niedostępna, ponieważ stała się cześcią Muru Berlińskiego. Obszar wokół bramy był najczęsciej pokazywany w relacjach medialnych z obalania muru w 1989 roku, a następnie zjednoczenia Niemiec w 1990. Po klęsce Prusbitwie pod Jeną-Auerstedt w 1806 roku Napoleon był pierwszym, który wykorzystał bramę w defiladzie zwycięstwa, a następnie wywiózł kwadrygę do Paryża. Po klęsce Napoleona w 1814, podczas pruskiej okupacji Paryża, kwadryga została zwrócona Berlinowi i dostosowana do nowej roli Bramy Brandenburskiej jako łuku triumfalnego. Obecny wygląd brama zawdzięcza renowacji przeprowadzonej w latach 2000–2002.
