Chateau de Brissac is a castle located in the commune of Brissac-Quince, the department of Maine-et-Loire, France. The castle is recorded to have been built during the 11th century, and has a long and interesting history. Like many castles around the world, the Chateau de Brissac is said to possess its own resident ghost. This is the ‘la Dame Verte’ or Green Lady, who is said to be the ghost of an unfaithful wife murdered by her husband during the 15th century.
One of the most infamous residents of the Chateau de Brissac is the ‘la Dame Verte’ or Green Lady, who is the chateau’s resident ghost. The Green Lady is said to be the ghost of a woman by the name of Charlotte de Breze, who was the illegitimate daughter of King Charles VII and his mistress, Agnes Sorel. She was also the half-sister of King Louis XI.
Her favorite haunt is said to be the tower room of the chapel, where she can be found in her green dress, hence the name ‘Green Lady’. Additionally, it has been claimed that the ghost’s face has holes in place of her nose and eyes, perhaps a reflection of what was done to her when she was murdered. Her moans are also said to be heard throughout the chateau in the early hours of the morning.
