The architectural gem that is the Castle of the Dukes of Brittany is over eight hundred years old. A symbol of the splendour of the last of the Montfort dynasty, François II and Anne of Brittany, over the centuries the castle has undergone a number of transformations. It has suffered fortunes and misfortunes, welcomed a wide variety of guests, and has been used for some rather surprising functions. The castle has played host to kings, witnessed revolutions, undergone enemy occupation, falling into a state of disrepair before being restored to its former splendour. The Castle of the Dukes of Brittany is a proud witness to eight centuries of history.

Bertrand Guillet is the Director of the Castle of the Dukes of Brittany – Nantes History Museum.
