Nanstein Castle history

Around 1520 the castle was expanded and modernized to protect against artillery fire. In the spring of 1523, the castle was captured by the combined armies of three imperial princes and partially destroyed. After 1543 the castle was restored and the Renaissance palace was built around 1600. After the Thirty Years' War, Duke Charles IV of Lorraine took over the castle. In 1668 Charles I Louis, Elector Palatine blew up the castle. The castle was finally destroyed by French troops in 1689 during the Nine Years' War.
