Creully - Château
The "Château de Creully" is known since the 11th century. It got fortified during the 100-Years-War - and remodeled and altered ever since.

Hamon le Dentu lived here. He was one of the leader of a rebellion against the young William the Bastard" (later named "William the Conqueror". Hamon le Dentu and most of his prominent co-rebels died in the Battle of Val-ès-Dunes (1047). From then on the power of William was undisputed within the Normandy.

In summer 1944 Field Marshal Montgomery (aka "Monty") had his tactical headquarters here for some weeks.
