Notes: Château de Mousson in Meurthe-et-Moselle, in Alsace-Lorraine-Champagne-Ardenne, was until the thirteenth century the castle and the remains of the counts of Monsoon. Located on top of the hill, overlooking the valleys of the Seille and Moselle. He did not resist the ravages of time, wars and especially to Cardinal Richelieu. The seventeenth century was fatal to the castle of Monsoon. Symbol of the spirit of independence and resistance of Lorraine against the French royal power, the castle of Monsoon was an obstacle to the centralizing designs of Louis XIII and Richelieu. In 1633, like many castles in the region and Nancy fortifications, the castle was demolished by Monsoon peak and mine. It was destroyed by the inhabitants of the region who acted under duress of French troops. Castle Mousson been a classification as historical monuments since April 1932.
