Stolpen Castle: Cosel Tower - living room

Posted by
daniela (Berlin, Germany) on 17 January 2012 in Lifestyle & Culture.

Cosel tower, third floor. At least it is a room looking like a living room. Known is that the Countess in her 80s used only one room, most likely it was the room on the fourth floor.
The Countess was forced to leave the arsenal house, where she was imprisoned for nearly 30 years already, after a fire caused by lightning.
In the arsenal house, she inhabited 8 rooms on two floors with her five servants.
After she had to live in the Coseltower (then called John´s tower), she dismissed three of her five servants for the lack of space she had left.

Note: None of the furniture comes from the Countess´ possessions, just from that time.
