Notes: The Château de Montfleury is a former stronghold of the thirteenth, rebuilt in the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries, and in the nineteenth century, the center of the Lordship of Montfleury, high in the eighteenth century in barony, which stands on the town of Avressieux in Savoie region Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. The stronghold of Montfleury is subservient in favor of Amadeus Roccard on 1 October 1392. In the middle of the sixteenth century, it is the possession of a branch of the family of Mareste. These, when they restore the castle, in 1728, became the barons of Montfleury. The latest in this branch of Mareste Avressieux, who dies at the end of the nineteenth century leaves for heiress Alberthe Rubempré, his stepdaughter, married to Count Luzerna, Piedmontese gentleman. His grand-son, astronomer and inventor, sold the castle in 1893. It falls to Mr Giraud, living in Moscow, and was transformed in 1960 into a holiday center, which he suffered much. Mr. Prayer, which was acquired in 1972, endeavored to restore and made Musée du Vieux Terroir.
