Little history of the Estate
In 1420 on the land (which now belongs to the domain), Jean V Duc de Bretagne was taken prisoner at the place of the Trubert bridge (betrayal bridge) at the time this bridge was made of wooden plank.
Marguerite de Clisson of the family of the counts of Penthièvre, daughter of the constable and become Dame de Champtoceaux to organized for JEAN V a ST Valentine's ball at the citadel of Châteauceaux, Jean V arriving by Loroux Bottereau, had to cross the village of Barbechat to join Champtoceaux, on February 13, 1420 he passed with his troop in a hollow path "the Big Way" along the Domain to descend to the Divatte and pass over a wooden bridge of the Domain, to join Champtoceaux.
It was late at night, it was bad weather, the men of Marguerite de Clisson dit Margot la Boiteuse pretext with jean V that it is necessary to hurry because they are waited by Ladies to feast, he proposes to jean V to leave in before with just a small troop, when Jean V had crossed the bridge the men of Margot la Boiteuse throw the planks of the bridge into the water, the Divatte being in full cru, the horses could not cross.
Jean V was taken captive to the citadel of Châteauceaux where he is detained and threatened with death. At the time Marguerite had the support of the dolphin of France Charles VII.
This unprecedented abduction then moved the European princes, but did not provoke any intervention near the court of France. But the action of Jean V's wife, Jeanne de France and the Barons Bretons enabled him to regain his freedom following the siege of Champtoceaux. It was during this liberation that the citadel of Champtoceaux was completely destroyed. Jean V wanted us to tear down all the walls of his prison until the foundation.
The fortress was leveled with prohibition to rebuild it. The inhabitants of the city leave it and rebuild a new borough outside.
