This is all I could find online. Not sure if true though...

Ruine Neideck

The ruins of Neideck Castle were once the ancestral seat of the powerful ancient family of the Schlüsselbergs, the former "managers" of today's Franconian Switzerland. Count Konrad von Schlüsselberg set up a customs house in the Wiesent River valley in 1347, thus provoking his neighbors. The Nuremberg and Würzburg bishops consequently attacked Neideck Castle and killed the Count. An anecdote tells us that he was sitting on the privy that hung over the wall precisely at the moment a catapulted stone hit it and was killed on the spot. Thereupon, the castle passed to the Bamberg bishops. In the Second Margrave War it was so badly destroyed by supporters of the Margraves of Brandenburg/Kulmbach, that it was never rebuilt. The rubble of the ruins provided a source of building material.
In the 18th century Jurassic marble (fine-grained Jurassic limestone) was discovered below the castle and subsequently quarried, so that the Castle suffered even greater destruction. The Jurassic limestone was then used in the construction of the Würzburg residence.

Thank you for finding this, JohnnyMass. That is a fascinating history. Its unfortunate they did not provide further information about its official name or if other buildings were constructed with it.

Later he requested the unique orthodox style paintings (the only such Orthodox-style paintings in Roman-style church). Paintings were made by team of imported Orthodox painters lead by Master Andrzej, and were finished by 1418. In XVII century the chapel gained "Lublin reneisannce" style attic.

The Castle was also place of the sejm(parliament session) of 1569, when Polish-Lithuanian Union was established. Painting of this event by famous old Polish painter Jan Matejko is in Lublin Castle.

Castle was partly destroyed and modified a few times, the most recent huge redesign was in 1824-1826 (initiated by Stanisław Staszic) to the neogothic style, that is visible to current day. The castle was a prison since 1826 to 1954, Germany during WW2 used it, as well as Soviets during and after WW2 till 1954. Soviets killed Home Army (Polish anti-nazi and anti-communist resistance movement) members here, among others. Later it was made into a musem, which it is to this day.

So it's very ancient, and not so ancient at the same time. Still - the castle tower is one of the oldest buildings in the whole Lubelszczyzna region.

Depends on the definition of a castle and palace. Mostly there are royal palaces in Europe, but also castles that are part of the different European monarchies. The few other than windsor castle I can think of is Gripsholm and Frederiksborgs castle.

Gripsholms castle in Sweden

And Frederikborgs castle in Denmark.

Just a few of the "real" royal palaces of Europe. Fotos from Wikipedia.



The four palaces of Amalienborg. Copenhagen Denmark.



Palacio Real in Madrid Spain.


Royal palace in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.


Royal palace of Buckinham, London England.


Stockholm Royal palace, Sweden.


Drottningholm Royal palace. Stockholm, Sweden.


The Royal palace, Oslo Norway.


The Royal Palace, Brussels Belgium.


The royal palace Monaco. Could aswell be called a castle since it still have some fortifications features.
