Burg Trifels

Burg Trifels

Aerilius
Description
The imperial castle Trifels lies above the town of Annweiler on a triply split sandstone rock. The castle presumably comes from the 11th century and was handed over in 1113 to the German emperor Heinrich V. The best known prisoner was in 1193 the English king Richard the Lionheart. Moreover, in the period between 1125 and 1298, the imperial regalia, including crown, imperial orb and sceptre were kept several times in the castle. In the 13th century, Trifels became less important and was mainly destroyed in 1602 by a stroke of lightning. In 1866, the Trifels club was founded in order to preserve the castle. Also the rulers of the Third Reich enjoyed the Trifels and built it up again in 1938 as a complete new creation. Thereby for the National Socialists, it was not about a very realistic reconstruction, but about a glorification of the German history. #Allemagne #Annweiler #Burg #Deutschland #Germany #Heinrich_V #Kaiser #Mittelalter #Palatinat #Palatinate #Pfalz #Reich #Reichsinsignien #Reichskleinodien #RheinlandPfalz #Rhineland_Palatinate #Richard_Löwenherz #Richard_the_Lionheart #Salier #Staufer #Trifels
