Does someone have information about the Chateau de Jemeppe in Belgium. I have already looked on internet, but could only find some info about the remake of this castle in Almere (Holland).

Thanks

i found some site on the internet
http://www.mulhuyzen.nl/rb-chateau.htm http://www.skene.be/RWJP98TXT/hargimont.html

And in mine book 'Ch‚teaux en Belgique' it says:

the knights templars had a house between Marche and Rochefort which prospered until Philippe le Bel obtaind the abolition of the order in 1307. at the end of the period the stronghold of jemeppe-hargimont, held by the d'Orchain family was already a force to be reckoned with.
the eldest part is the imposing 13th century square keep whose mass seems to overwhelm the long walls pierced by rectungular indows and flanked by round turrets.

i also have a map and text in mine 'het groot kastelenboek van BelgiŽ' i will look if i can scann it in and then i will email it to you.

All times are PT (US)
