Contra Hegel

April 5, 2009

For a time in the 1980s, the castle my de Berneval ancestors built in the Pale in the early 13th c. was slated to be razed and turned into a parking lot.

It was instead renovated: the president of the Irish republic presided over a ribbon-cutting, and an allée of hornbeams was planted in the garden.

Now, certain bedroom scenes in “The Tudors” are filmed there.
