The photos of all the palaces are really very good! The only thing that is missing is the location and country of origin. Maybe someone can help?

From post #1:
http://i.imgbox.com/adrto9HT.jpg:
I'm pretty sure that his is Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerød, Denmark where Prince Joachim and Princess Alexandra of Denmark got married.

http://i.imgbox.com/acbScL5U.jpg
http://i.imgbox.com/abxwyC8t.jpg:
This would be Glücksburg Castle (Schloss Glücksburg) in Glücksburg, Germany where King Christian IX and his siblings grew up.

I like the Patio de los Leones of The Alhambra in Spain.
I like the twelve-sided fountain surrounded by twelve sculpted lions from which the courtyard takes its name.

Thanks,such a shame that Chinon is a ruin given its historical importance.

Isn't Mainau the residence of the Counts and Countesses Bernadotte? I'm sure I've read that somewhere.

Yes the descendansts of the late Count Lennart. His father Prince Vilhelm inherited it from his mother Queen Victoria, née Princess of Baden, who had inherited it from her parents Grand Duke Friedrich I. and Grand Duchess Luise. When Prince Lennart lost his titles and privilieges after his first marriage he came to the Mainau and turned it into the flower Paradies we know today.

Thanks for the information, Stefan. Mainau is a lovely palace, and indeed a flower paradise.

For some research, I was looking up castles and palaces in Belgium and came across these nice ones:

Egmont Palace, Brussels ~ Château Malou ~ The Royal Palace of Brussels ~ Hof ter Borgt

There are lots more here: List of castles and châteaux in Belgium - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Chateau de Chambord, Loire Valley, France.

Largest chateau in the Loire Valley, built 1519-1547 as a hunting lodge for François I, King of France.
Napoleon gave the chateau to his confidante Louis Alexandre Berthier, 1st Prince de Wagram. On his death in 1815 it passed to his widow, Duchess Maria Elisabeth in Bavaria.
It was then bought for the infant Comte de Chambord and on his death in 1883 passed to his sister's heirs, the Dukes of Parma.
The French government acquired Chambord in 1930.
