Historical Origin And Design Inspiration

Chéteau de Modave or Chéteau des Comtes de Marchin (E: Castle of the Counts of Marchin)The Chéteau is situated near the village of Modave in the province of Lige Belgium. The oldest part of the building, the so called donjon, was built on a strategic rock high above the valley of the river Hoyoux. The oldest parts still visible today date probably back to the 13th-century and were erected by the Lords of Modave. In the 16th-century the chateau and the land of Modave became property of the Haultepenne and de Saint-Fontaine families. In the next century the Comte of the nearby Marchin became the new owner. It was Jean-Gaspard-Ferdinand de Marchin (1601-1673), a great military commander, who turned the medieval fortress in a luxury baroque residence. His son Ferdinand de Marsin neglected the castle and lived in France. Later it came into the possession of successively: Maximilian Henry of Bavaria, elector of Cologne and Prince-Bishop of Lige, (1682 - 1684) Cardinal William Egon of Furstenberg, and his heirs (1684 - 1706) Baron Arnold de Ville (1706 - 1772) Anne-Léon, Duke of Montmorency, and his heirs (1772 - 1817)
