Description of Glanegg Castle
Glanegg Castle is one of the largest medieval
strongholds in a state of Carinthia of Austria. It was constructed
in 1121 by Duke Henry III of Carinthia. After his death Clanegg
Castle passed to his nephew Count Bernhard von Marburg. Glanegg Castle proved to be
a formidable fortress between 1473- 78 when it was repeatedly
attacked by invading armies. They failed to capture it. Glanegg
Castle was called back into military service during the Sixth
Coalition War in the late 18th century, but it was largely used as a
barrack for soldiers and warehouse for troops.
Castle was bought by Hofrichter Hirzegger Ossiach in 1818 and later given to
his daughter Josephine as a wedding present when she married Klinze
Glanegg. The fortress was largely abandoned around this time and it
fell in disrepair.
