Château de Sedan the largest fortified castle in Europe. The construction of the castle started in 1424 by Eberhard II von der Mark on a site of an older 11th century citadel. In 1870 during war between Prussians and the French the citadel gains an important strategic importance. However 700 cannons of the Prussian army convinced Napoleon III of France to surrender. Over 83,000 prisoners of war were deported to Prussia.
