Paul Anthony Moore / 10,205 items
The Château d'Olhain is a medieval castle located near Fresnicourt-le-Dolmen in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of northern France. It is probably the most famous castle in the Artois region and is made even more beautiful by its position in the middle of a lake. The castle was a major stronghold for the Artois in medieval times and is testimony to the power of the Olhain family. The present construction is largely the work of Jean de Nielles, who married Marie d’Olhain at the end of the 15th century.
