  Chenonceau Castle
by Kuznetsov_Sergey

The Chateau de Chenonceau is a manor house in Loire Valley. It was built on the site of an old mill on the River Cher, sometime before its first mention in writing in the 11th century.
There is a set of the most improbable histories connected with a name of Diana de Poitiers: as if she was simultaneously the mistress of the king and his son; as if Francisk asked her "to train his son in a science of love", still not skilled young man whom she made her lover.
