Historical Origin And Design Inspiration

The Chateau de Chateauneuf, also known as the Chateau de Chateauneuf-en-Auxois, is a 15th century fortress in the commune of Chateauneuf, 43 km from Dijon, in the Cte-d'Or departement of France. The castle was built in 1132 by Jean de Chaudenay for his son Jehan, who took possession of it in 1175 and became Jean I de Chéteauneuf. Facing the threat of the Hundred Years' War, the lords of Chateauneuf then built the powerful fortifications around the 12th century keep. After nine generations in the castle, the reign of the Chateauneufs ended in tragedy when in 1456 the last heiress, Catherine de Chateauneuf, was burnt alive for poisoning her second husband, Jacques d'Haussonville.


View of Philippe Pot's tomb In 1457, Philippe le Bon, duke of Burgundy, offered the fortress to his advisor Philippe Pot, also of the Order of the Golden Fleece (French: ĺ'Ordre de la Toison d'or) and a knight of Saint Michael. He then modified the castle to make it more comfortable as a residence, in keeping with the style of the court of the Duchy of Burgundy. A chapel and a residence dated to this time were built out in the court of the castle, in the flamboyant Gothic architectural style. At multiple places in the castle one can find the device of Philippe Pot, Tant L Valt .
