History from Wikipedia the free encyclopedia.

In the Middle Ages, Ingelmunster was, partly owing to its fortification, an important location in the castlery of Kortrijk (Courtrai) and the canton of Harelbeke. The village fiefdom came under the rule of the lords of Gistel after the House of Rode. It then became part of Burgundy and Cleves, and ultimately subject to the French throne.

The most famous royal resident of the village was Philip the Fair, King of France, who resided in the castle in 1297, five years before the Battle of the Golden Spurs. At that time, Philip was on his way to punish Bruges. The people of Bruges met him halfway with an offer of submission to his rule, on the condition that they be allowed to keep the relic of the Holy Blood. The French king accepted.

I hope you enjoy, thanks to all members for visit to my previous picture. I read different discussions, where I my distance.
