Castle of Maidens

by Micha F. Lindemans
The Castle of Maidens, in Arthurian romance, was a castle rumored to contain young women, either as inmates or prisoners. The castle was ruled by Duke Lianour, but he was slain by seven brothers who then took over the castle. They in turn fell at the hands of three of Arthur's knights, and, afterwards, the duke's daughter took charge of it. The original name of the castle was possibly the Castle of Mount Agned, founded by Ebrauces, King of Britain.
