Old Castle Meersburg / Altes Schloss Meersburg

Old Castle Meersburg / Altes Schloss Meersburg
Seen inbetween the houses below. The big tower, the Dagobertsturm, is supposedly and as the name suggests, founded by Dagobert I , so Merowingan and really extremely old. Fact is that is was already the main building of the then existing fortified castle when young Conradin of Swabia lived here and gathered troups, before he went to italy and lost his life.

Zwischen den Haeusern darunter gesehen. Der dicke Dagobertsturm soll, wie auch der Name sagt, von Frankenkoenig Dagobert I erbaut worden, also ist er im Kern wohl Merowingisch. Was man sicher weiss, ist das dies schon der Begfried der Burg war, auf der Jung Konradin, der letzte Staufer, lebte, bevor er nach Italien zog und verschied.
