Photographer's Note

During the Middle Ages, the lords of Montsoreau extend their influence through their fields, on the two provinces. Political and economic relations appear between the lords of the manor of Montsoreau and the abbey of Fontevraud, and with the monks of the area.
The town of Montsoreau was one of the 32 walled cities of Anjou.
It was early and until the end of the 18th century, the center of the jurisdiction of the county. At the 17th century, the castle shelters salt of smuggling and the lord of the castle manufactures counterfeit money... Where was the police force during these years ?
