Dans l'état actuel des connaissances, les castellologues s'accordent à considérer Fréteval comme le premier exemple de donjon circulaire en France. Construit à partir de 1087 par Nivelon II, vassal du comte de Blois, il fut au coeur des conflits entre Plantagenets et Capétiens. Le 21 juin 1170, le roi d'Angleterre Henri II, entre deux entrevues avec le roi de france Louis VII, y rencontra Thomas Becket, l'évêque de Cantorbery, avec promesse de " bonne paix et sécurité" curieusement tenue puisque le prêlat fut assassiné le 29 décembre suivant. En 1194, Richard Coeur Lion vint prés d'ici tendre une embuscade à Philippe Auguste avant que s'ensuivent les turbulences de la guerre de cent ans.

ENGLISH A multi-cache speed (hundreds of meters between waypoints) to view the site feudal Fréteval, where signs inform visitors about where and what type of medieval castle of the first generation. You will find the index and three of the four panels, to obtain the coordinates of the cache.

In the current state of knowledge, the consensus is castellologues Fréteval as the first example of a circular tower in France. Built from 1087 by Nivelon II, a vassal of the Count of Blois, he was at the heart of conflicts between Plantagenet and Capetian. On June 21, 1170, King Henry II of England, between two interviews with King Louis VII of France, where he met Thomas Becket, Bishop of Canterbury, with the promise of "good peace and security" curiously held since the prelate was assassinated on 29 December. In 1194, Richard the Lionheart came near ambush by Philip Augustus before the ensuing turmoil in the Hundred Years War.
