  1. Marianne and germania were respective female allegories for the French and the German nation.they stood as personification of ideals like liberty and the republic the importance of how they were portrayed lay in the fact that the public could identify with their symbolic meaning and this would install a sense of national unity in them.

  2. 1. In the 18th and 19th centuries artist represented the country as if it were a person
    2. Nations were portrait as female figures that sought to give the Abstract idea of the nation a concrete form
    3. The female form that was chosen To personify the nation did not stand for any particular woman in a real life.
    4 Thus in France she was Christened Marianne, a popular Christian name, which underlines the idean of a people’s nation.
    5 her characteristics were drawn from those of liberty and the Republic – the red cap, the tricolour, the cockade.
    6. Statues Of Marianne were installed in public squares to remind the public of national symbol of unity and to persuade them to identify with it.
    7 Marriane images were marked on coins and stamps too.
    8. Similarly germania became the allegory of the German Nation. In visual representations germania wears a Crown of oak leaves because the German oak stands for heroism.
    The importance of the way in which they were portrayed was to remind the public of the national symbols of unity and to persuade them to identify with them
