You may have wondered if some of the world’s most famous chateaus and palaces are built on the World Grid. Many are.
We have looked at hundreds of sites and want to show three examples. Enjoy!
The screenshot above is of the Chateau Azay-le-Rideau in Azay-le-Rideau, France. It was built from 1515 to 1527, and is one of the earliest French Renaissance châteaux. Built on an island in the Indre River at Azay-le-Rideau, its foundations rise straight out of the water.
The Treasurer-General of the Finances of France under King Francis I and mayor of Tours, began reconstructing Azay-le-Rideau’s earlier medieval castle, that was part of his wife’s inheritance. However, it was his wife, Philippe Lesbahy, who directed the course of the works, including its central internal staircase (escalier d’honneur) that is Azay’s greatest most remarkable feature, inspired by the staircase at Châteaudun.
As you can see, a 6′ grid line goes right through the chateau.
The Sans-Souci Palace in Potsdam, Gemany was the royal residence of King Henri I (better known as Henri Christophe) of Haiti, Queen Marie-Louise and their two daughters. It was the most important of nine palaces built by the king, as well as fifteen châteaux, numerous forts, and sprawling summer homes on his twenty plantations.
Here, a 7.5′ grid line goes right through the building.
The final example is the site of the former Stadtschloss Palace in Berlin, Germany. It was the principal residence (winter residence) of the Hohenzollern Kings of Prussia from 1701 to 1918 (the German Emperors from 1871 to 1918) and a museum following the fall of the German Empire in 1918.
The palace was damaged by Allied bombing in World War II. Although it was possible to repair the palace at considerable expense, it was demolished in 1950 by the German Democratic Republic (GDR) authorities. This was protested greatly by the West Germans. Following the reunification of Germany, it was decided to rebuild the Stadtschloss on the original site.
We can see that a 6′ grid line goes right through the site. Also notice that the same grid line goes through the Berlin Dome, just above the palace.
These are just a small number of examples of the world’s chateaus and palaces there were built on major World Grid lines. Further proof that this knowledge has been available to the world’s elite for hundreds and also thousands of years.
