Château de Chenonceau (Chenonceau, France)


The Château de Chenonceau is a manor house built on the site of an old mill on the River Cher, sometime before its first mention in writing in the 11th century. The original manor was torched in 1412 to punish owner Jean Marques for an act of sedition. He rebuilt a castle and fortified mill on the site in the 1430s.
