Castle Moyland in Bedburg-Hau, Germany

Germany

Last week I visited Schloss or Castle Moyland in Germany for a Christmas market. The Castle itself is beautiful, but I have yet been unable to find a connection to a royal woman, so Iโ€™m posting this as an extra article this Saturday. It might be connected to Anne of Cleves, or other women of the Cleves family as it is very close to Cleves, but so far I have found no such evidence. Photography inside was not allowed, but not much remained of the old interior anyway. Itโ€™s mostly art and sculptures now.

Castle Moyland was first documented in 1307 and in the 1740โ€™s King Frederick of Prussia used the castle to meet with a lover of his. In 1766 it came into possession of the von Steengracht family, and it remained in their possession until 1990 when a foundation was formed.
