he Arnsburger and Münzenberger Not far east of the coin's, near the ancient convent Arnsburg to Lich was built around 1000 on the initiative of the Salic ministeriales Kuno Arnsburg on a spur road on the steep bank of the weather. 1064 married Kuno of Arnsburg, henchman of the Emperor Henry III., Mathilde of Beilstein. Whose heiress Gertrude of Arnsburg married Eberhard von Hagen from Dreieich. The two chose the residence the Arnsburg and adopted the name of Hagen Arnsburg. [1] Her grandson Konrad II and his wife Luitgart donated 1150 on the site of a former Roman fort near their castle to the Benedictine monastery Altenburg, which belonged to the Abbey of Fulda. As compensation they received from the 1151 Fulda uninhabited Münzenberg and moved its headquarters in 1156 to the newly built castle there. My son, born 1151 Kuno I mentioned already by Münzenberg. With his name in 1162, the new family castle was first mentioned in a charter of Emperor Frederick Barbarossa. [2] The expansion of the castle by Kuno I of Münzenberg from the mid-1150s years and the concomitant development of a town named her feet could surely only be tolerated by Emperor Barbarossa and can be seen in the context of imperial policy, the terra from the Wetterau one imperil, wanted to make an imperial kingdom land. Kuno I Münzenberg accompanied by repeated as a royal chamberlain Barbarossa on his trips to Italy and stayed elsewhere often near him. His rise to influential ruler of the Wetterau was unstoppable. His espousal of the Hohenstaufen, he brought in the German throne dispute of 1198 clearly expressed when he for Philip of Swabia, the brother of the previous year late Emperor Henry VI., Strong as his successor did. [3] In the time I emerged Kunos essential parts of the curtain wall system to the main castle, the Roman palace, the eastern keep, gatehouse with the overlying parts of the chapel and kitchen construction. No later than 1174 ended the Romanesque construction, without the ring wall was completed. The palace remained unplastered, the Kitchen Torso one. As Kuno I acquired after 1170 of essential goods and rights in the Wetterau, lack of money could be the reason for the sudden demise of the construction of its castle. This is also suggested that he gave in 1174, the old family seat of the family of Arnsburg to Lich at Eberbach Abbey, the Cistercian settled there. [4] 1207 died Kuno I. His only son of Ulrich II Münzenberg was childless, so with his death in 1255 extinct in the male line of the Reichsministerialen Münzenberg. (Wikipedia)

Nice scene and POV. For me though it lacks punch, the colours look very flat and dull.
