Herzberg Castle history
In 1344, Herzberg Castle passed into the possession of the so-called Star League (in German Sternerbund), which was the enemy of the Count of Hesse. In August 1372, in order to regain control over this strategic point, the Hessian count began the siege of the castle but failed to capture the castle. In 1477 the Count of Hesse regained his authority over the castle. Between 1480 and 1497 the castle was rebuilt in the form of the fortress that is currently available. During the Thirty Years' War, in 1631, 1635, and in 1641 the castle was besieged, but not captured. During the Seven Years' War, the castle was occupied from 1762 to 1763 by French troops. In 1786 the castle lost its military significance, the castle was abandoned and began to collapse.
