Burg Vischering zur blauen Stunde.
Das war das Ziel des Ausflugs. Leider ist die Burg extrem spartanisch angestrahlt. Das macht es schwierig sie zu fotografieren. Für das äußere Gemäuer braucht man eine lange Belichtung und für die Fenster nur eine Kurze... Trotzdem, ich finde Burg Vischering gehört zu Recht in meine Liste für die Topmotive Deutschlands zur blauen Stunde.

.1419 – Hundred Years' War: Rouen surrenders to Henry V .
The Hundred Years' War was a series of conflicts waged from 1337 to 1453 by the House of Plantagenet, rulers of the Kingdom of England, against the French House of Valois, over the right to rule the Kingdom of France. It was one of the most notable conflicts of the Middle Ages, in which five generations of kings from two rival dynasties fought for the throne of the largest kingdom in Western Europe.
Henry V was King of England from 1413 until his early death in 1422. He was the second English monarch of the House of Lancaster. Despite his relatively short reign, Henry's outstanding military successes in the Hundred Years' War most notably in his famous victory at the Battle of Agincourt in 1415, made England one of the strongest military powers in Europe.Immortalised in the plays of Shakespeare, Henry is known and celebrated as one of the great warrior kings of medieval England.
After success at the Battle of Agincourt, Henry renewed the war on a larger scale in 1417. Lower Normandy was quickly conquered and Rouen was cut off from Paris and besieged. This siege cast an even darker shadow on the reputation of the king than his order to slay the French prisoners at Agincourt. Rouen, starving and unable to support the women and children of the town, forced them out through the gates believing that Henry would allow them to pass through his army unmolested. However, Henry refused to allow this, and the expelled women and children died of starvation in the ditches surrounding the town. In January 1419, Rouen fell.
.The Treaty of Troyes recognised Henry as the heir and regent of France and on 2 June 1420 at Troyes Cathedral, he married Catherine of Valois, the French king's daughter. They had only one son, Henry, born on 6 December 1421 at Windsor Castle. ✨🏛 @fiftyshades_of_history 🏛✨ 👉🏼 @georgiejuniorgirl 👈🏼
