Château de Châteaubriant

Château de Châteaubriant

This castle in Brittany is said to be haunted by the ghost of Françoise de Foix, a mistress of King Francis I. According to the legend, she was locked in her bed chambers by her husband, Jean de Laval-Châteaubriant, Governor of Brittany, because he was jealous of her relationship with the King. She died on 16 October 1537, and rumours said that she was either poisoned or bled to death. Since then, a ghostly procession would visit the château every 16 October at midnight.
