Richard the Lionheart of England controlled the Seine inthis area of France. He built a castle so that his control was complete. He however died, and his brother John became legitimate king. He did not have the abilities of his brother and within 12 months the castle had been taken by the French king and English control of the area was no more.

Taken with a Pentax LX camera and Pentax 28 mm shift lens on Kodachrome film.

Spend most of my time with images of yesterday (or before), but enjoy use of the Pentax K5 when possible.

    Fantastic! Living in Aus (as we do) we don’t get history like this… it would be amazing eh?

  • Thank you for your comment. It was great to see, and we walked up to it and around, but could not go in the day we were there.
