Knights of the square table
Favorite thing: Castle Habsburg:
Did you know that he Habsburger family were originally from Elsass in France?
In the 11th century they owned areas like Elsass, Germany and Austria.
The name Habsburg still exists in Switzerland. It is a small village in canton Aargau – the place that gave Europe’s once most powerful dynasty its name.
