Ruins of the castle of Coucy

From the beginning of the 10th century, it already existed on the current site of the castle of Coucy a fortress built by an Archbishop of Reims. This territory belonged to the siege of Reims from saint Remi, to whom he would have been given by Clovis. In 928, the count of Vermandois, Herbert, seized and there buchon Charles the Simple. Thibaut, count of Troyes, nicknamed the cheater, won and lost it several times. The Archbishop of Reims eventually give it in fief to the son of the County, for an annual cens of sixty Sub.

This first area there is no vestige; perhaps was the chapel that once existed in the backyard of the Castle (see Nr. fig. 1, A) a scrap of these constructions, prior to the 13th century; the shape of its plan and found debris could assume. Cannot challenge, is that the oldest parts of the Castle do not go back beyond the beginning of the 13th century.

This was Enguerrand III, the most powerful vassal of the Crown of France, who not only raised the vast Castle of Coucy which we still see the remains, but who built the walls of the city. Enguerrand III had trouble with the Archbishop of Reims; It swept through the territory of this church, which returned in possession of his lands by the intervention of Philippe-Auguste. Enguerrand was part of the expedition against the Albigensians, with famous count Simon of Montfort, and was one of the heroes of the battle of Bovines. Shortly after, he had new trouble with chapter of Laon; He seized the Cathedral, took off the Dean, made him lock in Coucy and ravaged the lands of the Church. The feud lasted two years, during which, despite the protests of neighboring bishops and the intervention of the Pope, the Dean remained in prison. Enguerrand contracted alliances which further increased his power and wealth; He was married three times, and his last wife, Marie of Montmirail, brought as a dowry the land of Condé en Brie.

Enguerrand, by way of succession, became Lord of Montmirail, Oisy, of of Crevec'ur and Ferté-Ancoul, of la Ferté-Gaucher, Viscount of Meaux and Castellan of Cambrai; He was already Lord of Saint-Gobain, seated, Marle, la Fère and Folembray [1]. Its riches, and especially the temper of his character, hired the Lord of Coucy in the companies attempted against royal power during the minority of saint Louis. One moment the vassal thought to be able to get their hands on the Crown of France. but its conducted deaf and its ambitious plans were foiled by the politics of the White Queen, who knew how to remove the feudal one of its most powerful support coalition, the count of Champagne. The Lord of Coucy was soon forced to swear an oath of loyalty in the hands of the King, who did not want to remember the projects of its too powerful vassal. It is at the time of the ambitious dreams of Enguerrand III need to be traced back to the construction of the magnificent Castle which we still see the gigantic ruins. The castle of Coucy had to be high quickly, as well as the walls of the city that it is, from 1225 to 1230. The character of the sculpture, profiles, as well as the construction, do not assign a date oldest or most recent.

The castle of Coucy is no longer a flanked enclosure, enveloping buildings arranged at random, and the castles of the 11th and 12th centuries; It is a vast, designed set and high building a single Jet, under a powerful will and immense resources. His plate is beautifully chosen, and its tusks are arranged with an art whose description gives only a weak idea.

Built at the end of a plateau of very irregular shape, the castle of Coucy dominates fast enough escarpments that rise of fifty metres approximately above a rich Valley, completed to the Northwest by the town of Noyon and North-North-East of Chauny; It covers an area of ten thousand metres approximately. Between the city and the castle is a large courtyard fortified, whose surface is triple at least one occupied by the Castle. This backyard, or locker, contained rooms quite extensive, which remain visible primers even today, enriched with columns and capitals carved with vaults of edge; stables and Chapel-oriented, drawn in A on our plan of the ground floor (fig. 1). It is the Romanesque chapel of which we have just discussed [2]. It communicated city in baille by a door overlooking the city and defended against it by two towers partially preserved [3]. The baille was protected by the B Tower, which dominates its perimeter, and the walls flanked by the two extreme towers of the Castle C, D. A gap of twenty metres in width between the castle of the barnyard. A single bridge in E on this gap gave entry into the Castle and consisted of isolated cells, with two decks wood, defended by two outposts E rocking ', E' or châtelets, and two-corps de garde F, F' placed on batteries, so as to let the bottom of the pit. The door in G has double harrows and leaves. This door opens onto a long vaulted passage that it was easy to defend, and which was to be equipped with machicolations in the vault.

On both sides of the aisle are arranged the vaulted guard rooms H and can contain many positions. Above was a logis on several floors, overlooking the gate and connecting to the curtain I. Of the entrance Corridor is led in the K of the Castle courtyard, surrounded by buildings supported on the curtains. L, were vaulted ground floor and overcome two-storey service buildings; m, housing three-storey apartments, on the side where the castle is less accessible from the outside, and served by the grand staircase; n, vast stores vaulted ground floor (cellars), with caves below closed ogival Vault. N stores were on the first floor, the living room lit on the outside. O,. You can see the foundations of the Chapel, which, at the first floor, was with the living room. Kitchens were probably placed in P, with particular staircase P' at the cellars; they had a special court in R, which coming under the Chapel, including the basement, forming ground floor, remains to day. Towers, C, D, S, T, have two floors of caves and three floors of rooms above the ground, not to mention the floor of the attic. They are, as we note very prominent on the curtains, nicely so scare. These towers, which have no less than eighteen metres in diameter off of? work, thirty-five meters high above the outside ground, are nothing to the Dungeon, bringing thirty-one meters in diameter off of? work on sixty-three metres from the bottom of the ditch paved until the coronation. In addition to his pit, this Dungeon has an outer circular wall, or shirt, which protects it against the out side of the locker. It was ground of the Court the chemin de ronde of the shirt by the ramp V, near the entrance to the Dungeon. It communicated rooms P (kitchens) with out using a staircase down to the bottom of the gap shirt and a Postern breakthrough in X, with leaves, machicolations and harrows corresponding to a second Postern Y with a drawbridge on the escarpment and obscured by the C Tower. A lower path X', arched in vaults, at the level of the bottom of the pit, following the circumference of the shirt; and was obviously intended to stop the work of minors, as our permanent counter-mine galleries, openings under the coatings of the walls and bastions.

In this underground, in X', is an excellent source subsurface, to the use of the kitchen. W, are latrines, taken at the expense of the thickness of the wall of the shirt for the guards of this House and the people of kitchen. Z was a cage with wooden stairs [4], which can be destroyed easily, which put the lower underground communication with the upper round road. The small stairs Q, giving in room P, served the Harrow and the machicolations of poterne X. The lower underground X' was still in communication with the staircase U, serving the upper works of the door. If the besieging forces had taken hold of the postern gate X (which was difficult, since he had to cross the first door Y and drawbridge,) cross the YX path as projectiles launched from the upper part of the shirt and aliasing opened on the wall J, forcing two leaves and confront a machicolation), he was in the front of the Harrow overlooking the bottom of the ditch of the shirt, with his left the railway gate which closed down the stairs from the kitchen, and arrested in the lower Gallery X 'by source X', which is a real well in a dark underground. If he forced the Harrow, he entered in the bottom of the inner ditch V', which is paved and without communication with the ground of the Court. Beaten by the defenses above the Dungeon, which he sent shots in a height of sixty meters, and the path of the curtain wall, it was lost, as men in this way could go down by the stairs Z, enter the Gallery of counter-mine X', cross the source on a Board, and cut off retirement by closing the door behind him. If the bottom of the outer moat, it succeeded in undermining the foot of the shirt, it was the busy underground. This work of sapping could not, in any way, weaken the walls of the shirt, because it should be noted that this underground is taken at the expense of a slope, a base tilted, behind which the masonry of the shirt is intact.

Of all the defenses of the castle of Coucy, the Dungeon is much the strongest and best treated. This beautiful construction deserves special attention. It consists, inside, vaulted three-storey, and a large upper round road, with flat top in the Center, covered formerly lead. To enter the room of the ground floor, it was necessary to cross a bridge (torneis bridge) rocking that rolling on an axis, closed the door by lifting. The traces of this early provision are still visible. The apron of the bascule bridge fell on a pile isolated, found the first Conference in the middle of the gap. Deck lowered with a winch placed in a small mezzanine floor above the door, it was arrested by a Harrow sliding into two grooves, behind the tables of the door, and a machicolation. The Harrow and the machicolations were served by people stationed in the room of the mezzanine. As a result of the Harrow was a single leaf door, enhanced huge bars within the thickness of the wall. To enter in the room or on the stairs, should still force doors with bars. There was even a grid at the end of the corridor to the room, to allow people to inside of cover shots those who themselves would be ventured in this passage. The ground floor room is magnificent; It consists of twelve sides, forming each a wide niche vaulted openings.

It should be noted that these niches are double height, forming two rows of large cabinets one above the other, very-own to conserve and store with order projectiles and weapons needed in times of siege.

One of these recesses contains a sink very deep and wide; another serves as a fireplace. Left of the entrance Corridor are latrines; on the right, the staircase that climbs to the ridge of the Dungeon. This room was vaulted through twelve due in quadrant, culminating in a huge key breakthrough ' it [5], to allow the men stationed in the upper floor to give or receive orders. These bows are worn on capitals in carved cascabels with figures. Two windows pierced in a high-rise lit up this ground floor, and although the room had to be quite dark, it was internally decorated with paintings.

The second floor, covered in part by arches in cradle, in part by a barrel-vaulted arches warheads bihexagonal, shows a very beautiful and well-designed layout: it is a large room surrounded by a portico, whose soil is high 3 meters above the keypad. Wooden balconies, whose trace is everywhere evident, allowed to proceed until the inner circumference formed by the heads of the batteries. It was there that it met the entire garrison, when he had to give general orders. Twelve or fifteen hundred armed men could easily, thanks to this portico with these balconies, stand in this immense Rotunda and hear what was being said at the centre. It is hardly monuments or Roman, or modern, which are both bigger and more powerful.

We try to give a small idea in figure 2. That is represented by the thought a thousand armed men gathered in the Rotunda and its portico disposed as lodges of a concert hall; few days illuminating this crowd; at the centre, le Châtelain giving his orders, while it is quick to mount, by means of a winch, weapons and projectiles through the ' they vaults. Alternatively, at night, a few lamps hanging from the walls of the portico, the garrison sleeping or causing in this vast reservoir of men; We listen outside noise arriving by l ' he central of the vault, the call to arms, the hasty steps of defenders on the crenelations of wood, certainly it is painted a scene of a singular quantity. If far as can the imagination of novelists or researchers historians of the local color, it will represent them hardly the sight of these monuments so great and so simple in their provisions making it comprehensible at first sight d ' it. Also we recommend to all those who love to live sometimes in the past to go see the donjon of Coucy; because anything painted better feudalism in its power, its me urs, any Warrior life, that this admirable debris of the castle of Enguerrand.

Amount still by the spiral staircase, we arrive on the top floor, which is crenellated. Lead coverage protects vaults and formed a platform in flag; the surrounding a wide path allows to move freely and reach the niche. Water flows well holes in the kidneys from each of the vaults of the portico, cannot leave doubt that this floor has always left open, as well as suggests the engraving of the hoop. However, in time of war, of great crenelations double storey were laid on the stone crows that exist in lowlands of aliasing. Figure 4 shows a portion of these posed crenelations. There are at the top of the donjon of Coucy the transition from wood to stone machicolations crenelations. Indeed, for a book also powerfully designed and executed, the crenelations on rocking joists should not seem durable enough defence. This system of crenelations on stone consoles is applied not only to the donjon of Coucy, but also to the towers of the Castle [6]. The defensive provisions of Coucy attract not only the attention of archaeologist; the Dungeon presents fragments of sculptures of great beauty.

Here is process by which the donjon of Coucy had to be high. Construction was carried out in spiral, from the base to the Summit, by means of a scaffold erected while the masonry amounted; This scaffold formed thus outside the exterior cladding a sloping path that allowed to ride without difficulty the boulders up to the ridge. The square holes of boulins of these scaffolds and the links which prevented their rocking sound visible and regularly arranged at the rim of the enormous cylinder. It is impossible to use a process both simpler and more ingenious to build quickly and without unnecessary costs, as big Tower. Today the vaults of the three floors are broken, and the upper glacis, as well as the four pinnacles which crowned the cornice no longer exist. This Coronation indicated us by the hoop, in his book: the most excellent buildings in France. A few pieces of this glaze and pinnacles in the bottom of the pit was found. The masonry was linked using beams of wood from 0 m, 20-0 m, 30 of rendering, drowned in the thickness of the walls, following the method still in use in the 12th century. Above the arches of the first and the second floor, this chaining connected to enrayures also of wood.

Around 1400, the living room and the residential buildings M (see figure 1) were rebuilt, and the upstairs door, by Louis d ' Orléans, who had acquired this area of the last descendant of the Coucy [7]; wider days were drilled outdoors, and curtains were machicolations with stone parapets, following the method of the time, instead of consoles with crenelations of wood. The other parts of the Castle remained as Enguerrand III had left behind.

It was only during the troubles of the Fronde that this magnificent stately residence was completely devastated. Its Governor, appointed Hébert, was summoned by cardinal Mazarin to place into the hands of Marshal d ' Estrées, Governor of Laon.

Hébert who resisted this summation on the pretext of contrary orders left by King Louis XIII, the siege was put, may 10, 1652, before the town, which was soon taken; then, some time after, the castle garrison capitulated.

Cardinal Mazarin made immediately dismantle the place. Sieur Métezeau, son of the engineer who built the dam of la Rochelle, was that the cardinal sent to Coucy to consume this? work of destruction.

Through the mine, he blew up the front of the shirt, as well as the vaults of the Dungeon and most of those of the other towers, he set fire to the buildings of the Castle and made it uninhabitable.

Since then the people of Coucy, until lately, stopped to take in the enclosure of the Castle stones they needed for the construction of their houses, and this prolonged destruction completed l?work of Mazarin.

However, despite these causes of ruin, the mass of the castle of Coucy is still standing and has remained one of the most imposing wonders of the feudal era. If one had left at the time only the task of degrading the stately residence of the Lords of Coucy, we would still see these huge structures in their original splendour, because materials, an excellent quality, have undergone no alteration. the buildings were designed to last forever, and Interior paints, in sheltered places, are as fresh as if they have just been made.

As much as you can recognize it by examining the barrel, the castle of Coucy through in his foundations of numerous and extensive underground, which seem to have been systematically arranged to establish communications hidden between all points of homeland defence and the outside.

The tradition goes so far as to claim that one of these underground, whose entry is seen in the large cellars, under residential buildings M, ran through the hills and valleys, to the Abbey of Prémontré. We are far from guaranteeing the fact, especially since similar captions attached to the ruins of the castles of the middle ages in France; but it is certain that, on all sides, in cellars, you can see from the mouths of vaulted galleries that are today filled with rubble. We give (fig. 3) the plan of the first floor of the castle of Coucy. Pictured: in A, the logis placed above the entrance. in B, the Dungeon with his shirt. in R, the chapel oriented, designed and executed with unparalleled grandeur, judging by the fragments of the mullions of the windows that litter the ground; d, the living room of the Court, said of the valiant Knights, because we saw in niches the statues of the nine preux. Two fireplaces heated up this room, largely informed at its southern end by a large canopy in the pinion.

A frame of wood with wood-panelled arched cradle covered this room. In E, room nine Preuses, whose figures were carved in the round bump on the mantel. Hoop we kept an engraving of this fireplace, which was divided into two hearths separated by a pillar, as shown on plan. A F den, taken at the expense of the thickness of the curtain wall, was accompanied by the les Preuses room. This piece, illuminated by a large and wide window overlooking the countryside on the side of Noyon, was certainly the most pleasant instead of the Castle; a small fireplace heated, and it was vaulted with elegance by arches of edge.

These last buildings date from the late 16th century or the beginning of the 15th century. We see perfectly how they were inlaid in the older buildings; How to make them more livable, it raised the curtains of a floor: because, in the primitive construction, these curtains were certainly not reaching such a high level, left the five towers a larger command and residential buildings were of much less importance. Time of Enguerrand III, the real home of the Lord was the Dungeon; but when the m? became feudal urs, of rough they were, instead, towards the end of the 16th century, elegant and refined, this Dungeon was forced to look very sad, dark and uneasy: the Duke of Orléans, became Lord of Coucy, built then these elegant buildings opened on the campaign, and did strengthen them following the procedure adopted at this time.

The Dungeon and his shirt, the four angle towers, the bottom of the curtains, the ground floor of the entrance gate and the chapel as well as the walls of the locker, belong to the primitive construction of the castle of Coucy under Enguerrand III. These four towers deserve that we say a few words. Each room, from the ground floor, is composed within Hexagon with niches, which some are pierced by embrasures. These parts are vaulted, and the niches overlap on each floor, full being above the voids, and vice versa; What was done to see all points out, and especially to avoid vertical cracks that occur in these kinds of constructions, when the voids are all over each other. Chimneys are made in the rooms, which are also accompanied by latrines. You will notice that the stairs to screw lead no background, but interrupt from the first floor to resume across the entrance to the tower.

This is a provision often adopted in the towers of that time, to avoid the betrayals, and forcing people who want to go up on the parapets to go through one of the rooms. It was a way to make easy monitoring, and to recognize people in the garrison who rode to the paths for the service; because the parapets of the curtains were accessible only by towers, and the stairs of the towers served therefore all superior defenses. We have featured in G (fig. 3) the flying bridge communication involving the living room D with the path of the farmyard on the South side. If by climbing, the enemy had taken the chemin de ronde (H) of the shirt, he had to force, either the door I, K door, to enter the Castle. The positions established in A or L threw it over the parapets in the ditch of the shirt. The post has served as the crenellated terrace M above the door, and the L position served as the chemin de ronde N Commander bridge flying G. As the garrison of the Dungeon, first floor it was on the path of the curtain wall by a bridge flying O, but passing through the body of guard L. With also well heard defences, there was no surprises to fear, when the garrison of the Castle knew perfectly its many detours, the resources they had, and that it took some care to keep.

A cavalier sight restored, drawn on the side of the farmyard (fig. 4), will understand the provisions inside and outside of the castle of Coucy.

It must be recognized that a long stay in a castle of this importance should be quite sad, especially before the changes made in the 15th century, obviously changes with the intention of making this less closed and most convenient residence housing. The Court, shaded by this huge donjon, surrounded by high buildings and a severe appearance, should seem narrow and dark, as judged by the presented view (fig. 5) everything is huge in this fortress; Although executed with great care, the construction has something rude and wild that shrinks the man of our time. It seems that the inhabitants of this feudal residence should belong to a race of giants, because everything takes to the usual use is with a scale greater than that accepted today: markets of stairs (we are talking about buildings from the 13th century), the lighters of niches, benches, are made for a size above the ordinary men. Enguerrand III, powerful Lord, from me urs fierce, fearless warrior, he had wanted to impose this force extra-human appearance, or had he composed his garrison of elite men ' is that we cannot decide; but by building his Castle, he thought certainly populate of giants. This Lord was always with him fifty Knights, which gave a figure of five hundred men of war about in ordinary times. It took nothing less than an also large garrison to keep the Castle and the farmyard. The cellars and huge stores that still exist under the ground floor of the Castle buildings allowed to cram rations for more than a year, assuming a garrison of thousand men. In the 13th century, a feudal Lord, possessor of a fortress similar and wealth fairly considerable to surround themselves with a similar number of people of weapons, and to provide them with ammunition and food during a siege of a year, could defy all the armies of his century: however the Lord of Coucy was not the only vassal of the King of France whose power was to fear.

The successors to the formidable Enguerrand III, real type of the feudal Lord, saw the enormous power of their ancestor decline their hands. His son Raoul II died in Egypt, at the battle of Mansura. Enguerrand VII, who became Lord of Coucy in 1344, was sent to England as a hostage of the ransom of King John, and on his return was forced to give twenty-two of the towns and villages that fell within his Castle a collective Charter of postage. He died in 1396, in Bithynia. This was the last Lord of Coucy family. In 1400, Louis d ' Orléans acquired this beautiful estate with four hundred thousand books tournaments. The Earth was erected in Peerage for him by King Charles VI, in 1404. Louis d ' Orléans, who built the castle of Pierrefonds, thus possessed two places of great importance between Paris and Flanders. It was he who, in the space of two or three years, rebuilt in large part the residential buildings of the castle of Coucy, the halls of the valiant Knights and les Preuses, and which did raise the old curtains of Enguerrand III time. According their archaeological character, these constructs must belong to the time of the acquisition of the field of Coucy by this prince, i.e. in the first years of the 15th century. It seems unlikely that Enguerrand VII, finding his devastated estate and its revenues significantly reduced upon his return from England, could undertake important and also expensive; While instead Louis d ' Orléans, prince very rich and large amateur of beautiful homes, would naturally, by acquiring du Château de Coucy, wanting to give this area a new splendor.

Louis II, Duke of Orléans, on the throne in 1498 under the name of Louis XII, gathers the land of Coucy at the royal field; It became the preserve of his daughter Claude de France, who married François, duc d ' Angoulême, which in turn became King of France under the name of François 1er. Coucy returned a second time so in the royal domain. François I did do some work in buildings that overcame the gateway of the Castle; There is no trace. Since then, Coucy became the preserve of the Dukes of Orleans: the brother of Louis XIV was Lord of Coucy, and his last Lord was Louis - Philippe of Orléans, says equality.

Today the castle of Coucy, with small wood that surrounds it, is part of the domain of the State. Since 1856, consolidation and excavation work there began under the direction of the Commission of historical monuments. This work became urgent; because the great Dungeon, cracked by explosions of mines of Métezeau, since in all weather, abandoned threatened to crumble in large part. The Government did not want that a beautiful ruin that recalls such great memories and whose appearance is still so imposing, was not retained. Sizeable credits were allowed to resume major cracks in the Dungeon, to chain it provisionally by means of two circles of iron and to cover. The excavations undertaken already have look for interesting debris: the Dungeon, the small lower Postern gap Flagstone floor and the inner halls of the valiant Knights and les Preuses foundations. The inhabitants of Coucy can no longer come to snatch the stones of the Castle whose ruins are monitored by a guard residing within its precincts.

View from which you can enjoy at the top of the Dungeon is the most magnificent: there's the campaign since the wooded plateaus that dominate the town of Laon to the forest of the acute, to Noyon and Chauny.
