of the castle
The castle of Moulineaux
was built towards XIe and XIIe century. No certainty as for the
existence of a Duke of Normandy, called Comma moth. It could be
a question of Robert-the-Splendid, duke of Normandy (1010-1035)
and father of William the Conqueror. Only certainty of royal stay,
that of Richard Heart-of-Lion, king d' Angleterre. The Castle was
destroyed by his brother Jean Without-Ground during his fight against
the king of France Philippe-Auguste. Statement thereafter, rouennais
them destroyed the turns of the castle during the One hundred year
old War to prevent the English from strengthening itself there.
A museum of wax characters shelters scenes of the life of Comma
moth. A counterpart of the royal drakkar of Asenberg is exposed
in a vault of Norwegian inspiration.
