Château d’Harcourt, Harcourt, Eure, France.
The Château d’Harcourt is the cradle of the Harcourt family. The first stone castle here was built by Robert II d’Harcourt, a crusader companion of Richard the Lionheart. Harcourts appear later among the most important barons of Normandy. Jean II d’Harcourt was a Maréchal de France. The castle is one of the best preserved castles in the country and contains the oldest arboretum in France.
