Of the three models of antique arches acquired by George from Rome, it was the Arch of Constantine that served as the inspiration for his own great triumphal monument in the aftermath of the Battle of Waterloo. Designed by John Nash, the arch originally stood in front of Buckingham Palace but was later moved to the corner of Hyde Park, where it is now known as Marble Arch.

Purchased in 1816
