Owner description: This 394-foot mural along the wall in the Royal Mews courtyard depicts a parade of Saxony rulers, some walking, others on horseback. Scratched into stucco by the artist in 1876, the mural was later recast onto porcelain tiles and, incredibly, survived the 1945 bombing of Dresden that destroyed most buildings.

The porcelain mural depicts the monarchs of Dresden in chronological order. A must see for any visit to Dresden.

It is right in the middle of the old city so I'm sure you'll walk past this beautiful mural and you should stop and look to see old rulers in Dresden. We walked past incidently about 3 or 4 times and each time we would stop to look for those rulers we'd learned a little more about.

Excellent way to learn about art, history and heraldry just walking by the Procession of Princes. Names, dates, coats of arms compliment every Wettin duke of Saxony.

To see such fine art on such a grand scale is very cool. Definitely something to see especially since it is so close to the Frauenkirche.
