Hold the horses, you really made my day by mentioning Maximilian I. Today I found the long awaiting answers on Who are they? And yes made by Neresheimer;
King Arthur at Maximilian’s cenotaph in Hofkirche Innsbruck Austria
Tomb of Maximilian I: King Arthur
Bronze, height 215 cm
Hofkirche, InnsbruckIn spite of the many concessions to the new spirit which was spreading across Europe at that time, Germany in the 16th century did not break with the medieval tradition. The native tendencies, given free play in the late Gothic style, were an excess of naturalism, sculptural dynamism and the thirst for expression, which were in complete contrast to the idealism, the sense of balance and the taste for harmony extolled by the neo-Platonists of the Renaissance. In many aspects Germany therefore remained faithful to the aesthetics and philosophy of the Middle Ages.
Significant in this respect was the attitude of the first Habsburgs to whom the Empire owed the revival of the old Germanic dream of universal monarchy. Maximilian, who was too impecunious to establish in stone the evidence of his glory, left to the engravers the task of celebrating his glorious deeds and illustrating his allegorical writing, completely imbued with past chivalry; his love of heroic chronicles permeates, too, the proud statues of the legendary kings of Theodoric the Goth and Arthur of Britain, figures cast in bronze by Vischer the Elder in the Venetian manner, during the Emperor's lifetime, to mount guard with his ancestors around his tomb at Innsbruck.
Although other artists acted as the principal bronze casters of life-sized ancestor figures for the unfinished, massive tomb ensemble of Emperor Maximilian I (d. 1519), Peter Vischer and his workshop produced two of the most striking figures, King Arthur and King Theodoric.https://www.wga.hu/html_m/v/vischer/peter_e/arthur.htmlKing Arthur

And last but not least meet Mary of Burgundy Dutchess of Burgundy (import marks London 1928) she married Maximilian of Habsburg, who after her death became Maxim I, Holy Roman EmperorMary soon made her choice among the many suitors for her hand by selecting Archduke Maximilian of Habsburg of Austria, the future Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I, who became her co-ruler The marriage took place at Ghent on 19 August 1477. Mary's marriage into the House of Habsburg initiated two centuries of contention between France and the Habsburgs, a struggle that climaxed with the War of the Spanish Succession in the years 1701–1714.
In the Netherlands, affairs now went more smoothly; the French aggression was temporarily checked, and internal peace was in large measure restored.Mary was born in Brussels as the only child of Charles the Bold and thus was his heir presumptive. At the age of 20, she became Duchess of Burgundy after the death of her father. To protect the Burgundian territories against her godfather Louis XI, Dauphin of France, Mary soon made her choice among the many suitors for her hand by selecting Archduke Maximilian of Austria, the future Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I, who became her co-ruler. Maximilian was two years younger and the arranged marriage turned out to be a close and loving union. She gave birth to three children, Philip, Margaret and Francis. Mary loved riding and was hunting with Maximilian when her horse tripped, threw her in a ditch, and then landed on top of her, breaking her back. She died several weeks later at the early age of twenty-five, which is said to have broken Maximilian’s heart. Mary and Maximilian were only married for five years. After Maximilian’s death, his heart was buried in Mary’s grave. A love that continues after death.

It appears to me Neresheimer made a series of silver statues (smaller copies) of statues surrounding the cenotaph (empty tomb) of Maximilian I in Innsbruck.
