Raudone Castle

Raudonė Castle is in Raudonė, Lithuania. Castle construction works started in late 16th century. In the 16th century the castle belonged to King Sigismund II August. A new renaissance castle was built on the ruins of the old one by a German knight, Krispin de Kirschenstein. The castle has since been rebuilt many times. The 18th century Polish owners of the Raudone estate, the family Olędzki (Olendzki) h. Rawicz (members of szlachta, general sejm and senate) commissioned Wawrzyniec Gucewicz with a renovation of the castle. The next owner, the Russian Prince Platon Zubov, acquired the estate in the first half of the 19th century and his family transformed the castle yet again. Their architect was Cesare Anichini. Today the building is an example of 19th century neo-Gothic architecture. Its last private owners were Sofia Vaksel (a Zubov) and her Madeirian husband, José Carlos de Faria e Castro.

The original castle is the setting of an East Prussian legend known as "The White Maiden of the Bayersburg".
