This is the castle in Germany that remains in my father's family name... Gossweinstein. My maiden name was Gesswein, the spelling was altered down through they years
My dad's ancestors lived here and reigned here. Had the tradition continued, the oldest son of the family, my father, would have become the king.
I would be a princess!
I wrote about Norway last year on this adventure, where my mother was born. Dad was born in the U.S., but this castle remains today in the Black Forest area of Germany. It is partially open to tourists.
