    Or should I say Castles?Frohberg Engenstein and Schalberg are ruined castles that are the furthest links in a line from the town of Aesh, Switzerland.Frohberg map coordinates 47.467740, 7.562194Schalberg map coordinates 47.464658, 7.568345Engenstein map coordinates 47.462990, 7.571749The first documented evidence of Frohberg was in 1292 with the entry of Conrad I Schaler "de Vroberg". This likely puts the build date in the twelfth or thirteenth century. Schalberg was documented as early as 1050; with Engenstein being more contemporary with Frohberg. In the 14th century, the whole area went along with the castle ruins to the Counts of Thierstein.Frohberg[img width=600 height=450]http://www.burgenseite.ch/Basel%20Land/Ruine%20Froberg,%20Schadberg%20engestein.JPG[/img]eac7f644ce.jpg4076409446_bb291cb257.jpg4075629079_823f22256a_z.jpgfrohberg_7615.jpgSchalberg57028468.jpg4075620765_33bc10f89f.jpg2136082632_20cabc32de_o.jpg2135300321_18c71b2fee_o.jpg[img width=600 height=450]http://www.burgenseite.ch/Basel%20Land/Ruine%20Schalberg%20%283%29.JPG[/img]8637319409_599fc8fb9e.jpgEngenstein57024356.jpg[img width=600 height=450]http://www.burgenseite.ch/Basel%20Land/Ruine%20Engenstein%20%282%29.JPG[/img][img width=450 height=600]http://www.burgenseite.ch/Basel%20Land/Ruine%20Engenstein%20%281%29.JPG[/img]452051l.jpg4534cf592bc47.jpg
