|JŠnos Rueber was a captain-general in Upper Hungary from 1568 to his death in 1584. Of the funeral monument, only the main figure survived. The original monument was probably a large scale one and had niches. It anticipated tombs of aristocrats of the early 17th century. Figures of the deceased lying or kneeling and praying on the sarcophaguses were common on monuments. The tomb of JŠnos Rueber was, however, a typical Renaissance work: the deceased fully armed is pridefully standing on his own tomb.
The statue recalls the style of Austrian and Southern German Renaissance.
