... the family rules over the surrounding area. The last of the line Catherine is burned at the stake in Paris for poisoning her husband. (Bad choice or bad luck getting caught). The chateau is sold and Philippe le Bon, Duke of Burgundy is awarded the chateau. The chateau prospers because of the fertile fields surrounding it and by 1826 the population of the village is 524. The canal is being dug at the bottom of the hill and in 1832 the first barge crosses ...
