    Notes 
    • Gernon Castle was located in Normandy, more precisely Montfiquet, Calvados, Normandy. The castle was built by the local Gernon family
      "...the Gernon's castle had had a fame of being an impenetrable fortress, in fact it held for at least three hundred fifty years, until the civil war in the mid 1300’s, when enemies sieged the castle for months, before finally having to resort to burning out the castle and its village. "
