A triumphal arch is a monumental structure in the shape of an archway with one or more arched passageways, often designed to span a road. Thought to have been invented by the Romans, the triumphal arch was used to commemorate victorious generals or significant public events such as the founding of new colonies, the construction of a road or bridge, the death of a member of the imperial family or the accession of a new emperor.
