Château di Brissac

Castle Châteaux of the Loire Valley, France

The highest castle in France Château di Brissac

The Castle of Brissac was originally a medieval fortress built by the Counts of Anjou in the eleventh century. It was rebuilt in the fifteenth century by Pierre de Brézé, minister of King Charles VII, who left it to his son Jacques, whose sad destiny is known. Married to Charlotte de Valois, daughter of Charles VII and Agnes Sorel, Jacques de Brézé surprised his wife in another man's bed: blinded by anger, he killed the two lovers with his own sword. Legend has it that Charlotte's ghost still rallies among the castle rooms during thunderstorms.
