The castle of cardona in catalonia, spain is considered as the most important medieval fortresses in the region crucial for the whole of the country. the castle was built in the 9th century on a hill and is a mixture of the romanesque and gothic styles. the owners of the fortress were powerful dukes of cardona stemming from the family of the crown of aragon which was almost as mighty as the royals and have enough means to keep such a castle. as a reminder of those tomes there’s an 11th century round tower called torre de la minyona. it is 15m high and 10m in diameter. the castle was heavily damaged in the 18th century during a siege by the bourbon troops whose attacks made a substantial part of the walls to collapse. the castle is now a splendid hotel. photo by @cpcarles 🙏🏻😍👍

Замок Кардона в Каталонии считается самым важным в регионе и вторым по важности в Испании. Сейчас в нем находится отель, но когда-то он принадлежал знатным и могущественным герцогам Кардона, происходившим из Арагонской короны. Построенный в 9м веке, он объединил в себе романский стиль и готику. Крепость была разрушена в 18м войсками Бурбонов. Со средневековых времен до наших дней дошла интересная кругла башня высотой 15м и диаметром 10м.

Gernstein castle, italy.

also known as castle tina is a castle located in the municipality of chiusa in south tyrol. more precisely, the castle stands in the rio tina valley along the road that connects chiusa to latzfons.
the castle was built towards the end of the 12th century, by heinrich garre (or gerro, minister of bressanone), from whom it took the name of gerrenstein.
the position of the castle has always been strategic in that, not only did it control the old road of the isarco valley, but it was also used to protect the area's copper mines.

Kreuzenstein castle, austria.

is a castle near leobendorf in lower austria, austria. burg kreuzenstein is 265 metres (869 ft) above sea level. it was constructed on the remains of an early medieval castle that had fallen into disrepair and was then demolished during the thirty years' war. intended to be a family vault for the wilczek family, it was rebuilt in the 19th century by count nepomuk wilczek with money from the family's large silesian coal mines. kreuzenstein is interesting in that it was constructed out of sections of medieval structures purchased by the family from all over europe to form an authentic-looking castle. thus, the castle can be considered both a 'neo-' and 'original' medieval structure. the castle is sometimes used as a location for films.

🇩🇪 albrechtsburg castle.
the late-gothic meissen albrechtsburg castle towers majestically over the picturesque elbe river valley. originating in the 15th century, it is deemed the oldest palace building in germany. over time, it adopted the role of a trendsetter, but not only in an architectural context. visit the castle and allow yourself to be enchanted by its timeless beauty.
the focus is on its function as a place of representative residence. as germany's oldest palace, the meissen albrechtsburg castle was deemed a trendsetter already at its time of e******n and made people awe for its outstanding architectural design in the late-gothic style.

Santa severa castle near rome, italy. it was first mentioned in the 11th century. the castle changed ownership many times in the medieval period, from an abbey to an abbey, from one noble family to another like orsini or anguillara. the castle has several lines of defense built in various epochs (18th, 16th and 14th centuries) and a moat. it has 2 rectangular and 2 cylindrical corner towers, and a round keep that is linked to the quadrilateral castle with a bridge. almost nothing left of the first medieval structure and its current appearance dates back to the 16th century that was the time of its splendor. from 16th to 17th century several popes chose to stay in the castle to spend their holidays - if one may say so. however that was it –from this time on high-profile guests rarely visited the castle, it started to fall apart. during wwii germans used the building as a military outpost. after the war a lot of effort and money was invested in the restoration. photo by @paologentiliphotography 👍🙏🏻😍
.
Замок Санта Севера недалеко от Рима. Он впервые упоминается в документа в 11м веке. В средневековье замок постоянно переходил от одного аббаства к другому, от одной благородной семьи к другой. Замок защищен несколькими линиями обороны, построенными в разные эпохи (18м, 16м и 14м веках), рвом, четырьмя угловыми башнями. Мост соединяет донжон с замком. От средневекового замка почти ничего не сохранилось – то что мы видим сейчас – это результат перестройки 16го века. Но на это время пришелся его расцвет: в 16м-17м веках его облюбовали в качестве места отдыха Римские папы. После них замок пришел в запустение, а в 1943 году немцы устроили в нем военный наблюдательный пункт.

Marksburg castle in rhineland-palatinate, germany. the castle dates back to the 12th century. it started as a bergfried that was later surrounded by a wall. the name was different in the beginning – it was called brubach castle after the village it was meant to protect. however later it was renamed. why? a legend says that during a battle near the castle st. mark appeared and saved the castle – so why not give it the name of the respected saint?! the castle is the only one in the region that was not seized by the french troops in the 18th century. actually this was great because that’s the reason why it managed to preserve its medieval parts unchanged. at the same time, it was rebuilt in the 16th century to meet the then modern war technologies. next centuries it served as a prison and as a home for disabled veterans. during the wwii the caste came under the us fire and sustained heavy damage. photo by @mindz.eye 🙏🏻👍😍
.
Замок Марксбург в немецкой земле Рейнланд-Пфальц. Замок был построен в 12м веке. Сначала возвели всего лишь бергфрид, но потом вокруг него построили стену. Изначально замок назывался по имени деревушки, которую он охранял – Брубах. Но название решили поменять. По легенде, во время битвы около замка явился Святой Марк и предсказал победу. В честь уважаемого святого решили и переназвать замок. Марксбург – единственный замок в округе, которые не был захвачен и разрушен французскими войсками в 18м веке. И это хорошо, потому что до наших дней дошли средневековые фрагменты. В 16м веке замок перестраивали по последнему слову военного дела. В последующие годы в нем была и тюрьма, и дом для инвалидов. А во время Второй мировой он подвергся обстрелу союзных войск.

Medieval castle of leiria up there!
.
the present configuration was influenced by the 4 major construction periods: the 12th century’s romanesque, the 14th century’s gothic dionysus, the early 15th century’s gothic johannine and the restoration trends of late 19th and early 20th century.

Uppsala castle by night. before the castle there was a big manorlike farm here.
the building of the castle began in 1549 by order of the king, gustav vasa. after his death in 1560 his son's added to the castle. it was refuebished in the 18th century. in this castle gruesome murders have happened, it was decided that sweden was to fight in the 30 year war and swedens first ruling queen, kristina, abdicated the throne here.

Castello di amorosa
this time i was sober enough to take pictures of the castle. 😆
unfortunately i've sobered up too late. it was after the sunset, that i was able to hold the camera straight.
a few months ago when i visited the castle for the first time with my camera, i left with 12 bottles of wine and 0 pictures.
so on my second visit i decided to be strong. and here's the result. 💁🏻‍♀️
more pictures are coming.

Castillo de atienza, s.xi (guadalajara)

desde cualquier punto que se llegue a atienza, la sorpresa de contemplar sobre las pardas ondulaciones del campo castellano un altivo promontorio rocoso rematado en castillo de guerreras evocaciones, es una experiencia difícilmente inolvidable.

en torno a este castillo musulmán, con el que rodrigo díaz de vivar no quiso entablar combate al considerarlo como una peña muy fuerte, surgieron las batallas a lo largo de toda la edad media.

entre los años 870-874 fue reconquistada por alfonso ii el magno, pasando otra vez a los moros poco después.

la conquista definitiva de atienza y su castillo tiene lugar en 1085.

junto al castillo se encuentra la iglesia románica de santa maría del rey.

Like all good italian towns, imola has a glorious castle complete with an ex-moat and drawbridge also. it's still used for small tours, weddings, and its best attraction: a summer time open-air cinema. the castle was believed to be built in the 1300's and instantly makes your mind wander at the past history surrounding its vigor. who lived there? how did they live and what did they do? who in the world created such a magnificent structure able to withstand so many years of change, weather, and other? here she is, the rocca sforzesca di imola basking in her thunder 🏰 .

The large drum towers and walls of chirk castle originally constructed in the late 13th century by roger mortimer were extensively restored following damage during the civil war.
the third picture shows detail of an extensive plaster frieze that predates the civil war and escaped damage.
there is a large collection of civil war matchlock muskets, halberds, three bar helms and cavalry armour in the entrance hall, indicative of chirk's important role in the civil war.
owned and occupied by the myddleton family from 1595, the family slowly transformed the imposing defensive structure into a impressive stately home with large, ornamental gardens.
sir thomas myddleton fought for the parliamentarians in the civil war and quickly lost chirk to the royalists. he was unable to retake the castle, most likely as he was unwilling to use artillery on his home.
by 1646, the myddletons were back at chirk and sir thomas' son, also thomas, was governor. they supported the return of exiled charles and the castle was sieged by parliamentarians in 1659, leading to sighting and extensive damage to the east wing. the castle was uninhabitable for the next decade. the final picture shows the fine detailing of the ebony and silver king chest the myddletons received for supporting the king.
the red hand of chirk can be seen all around the castle, as well as the three wolf heads of the myddleton crest. there are many myths surrounding the red hand, including the bloodstained hand of a knight in battle, the severed hand of a welsh prisoner and a race between two sons to touch the gate.
the @nationaltrust purchased the property in the 1970s and the castle and grounds have been open to the public since. both are worth taking the time to explore, and the gardens are especially pleasant in the spring with vast swathes of snowdrops blooming the the woods, followed by lots of daffodils.

The #gravensteen (dutch; literally "castle of the counts") is a #medievalcastle at #ghent, #eastflanders in #belgium. the current castle dates to #1180 and was the residence of the counts of flanders until #1353. it was subsequently re-purposed as a court, prison, mint, and even as a cotton factory. it was restored over 1893–1903 and is now a #museum and a #major landmark in the #city.

Did you know?
unlike many castles in germany, burg eltz has never been destroyed, although it was built on a then important trade route. visitors can still admire 850 years of medieval history. the castle has been owned by the same family ever since the name "eltz" was first mentioned in 1157.
-eltz castle, wierschem, germany

comment 8 star 919 Yesterday

Merhabalar. sizlere daha önce İngiltere tahtına çıkan en büyük kraliçelerden olan ‘kraliçe elizabeth’ten söz etmiştim hatırlıyorsanız.
👑👑👑
Şimdi biraz daha geriye gidip ondan daha önce tahta çıkmış ve yalnızca dokuz gün tahtta kalmış ve bu nedenle ‘dokuz günlük kraliçe” ismiyle tarihe geçmiş , ‘leydi jane grey’den ve paul delaroche’un kraliçenin ölümünü sahnelediği tablosundan söz etmek istiyorum izninizle..
👑👑👑
viii. henry’nin ölümünden sonra tahta geçen oğlu vi. edward, 15 yaşında ölürken tahtı üvey kardeşleri mary ve elizabeth’e değil (ki her ikisi de sonradan sırasıyla tahta çıkmışlardır), kuzeni jane’e bırakmıştır.
🎖🎖🎖
protestan olan jane grey, katolik kilisesi’nin İngiltere üzerindeki etkisini azaltmak için kullanılabileceği düşünülerek desteklenip tahta çıkarılmıştır. fakat, bu destek oldukça kısa sürmüştür.
🕍🕍🕍
edward’ın üvey kardeşi mary, katolikler’in de desteği ile jane’i tam 9 gün sonra tahttan indirmeyi başarmış ve onu idama mahkum etmiştir. leydi jane grey, 12 Şubat 1554’de londra kulesi’nde 16 yaşında 9 günlük kraliçelik yaptıktan sonra kafası kesilerek idam edilmiştir.
💒💒💒
tarihte anlatılan hikayeye göre; jane grey sakince idam tahtasına doğru yürümüş, son sözlerini söylemiş, incilden bir kısım okumuş ve gözlerini bağlatmıştır. ancak gözleri bağlandıktan sonra panikleyip idam tahtasını bulamamış ve panik halindeyken tökezleyerek tahtanın nerde olduğunu sormuştur. fransız ressam delaroche’un eseri tam da bu sahneyi anlatmaktadır.
🎨🎨🎨
jane gray’in kollarından tutan adam, kulenin teğmeni sör john brydges’tır ve onu idam tahtasına doğru yönlendirmektedir. giysinin açık renkli ve pürüzsüz dokusu genç kadının masumiyetini ve saflığını, donuk ve solgun görünen grimsi teni ölüm öncesinin soğukluğunu yansıtmaktadır.
🗡🗡🗡
eser, 1834’te meşhur salon de paris sergisi’ne katılmış ve çok ilgi görmüştür.
⛲️⛲️⛲️
painting: paul delaroche, leydi jane grey-the execution of lady jane grey, 1833, 246 cm × 297 cm., oil on canvas, ulusal galeri “national gallery”, londra.
🌷🌷🌷
yorumlarınızı beklerim. sevgilerimle 💞
