The history of the village

The Roland stone

The Ardennes are lands of legends, and the Roland stone is the perfect example. This mysterious megalith, which stands proudly on the bank towards Laifour, is surrounded by mysteries. It is said that Roland, the very Christian knight, nephew of Charlemagne, passed through the Ardennes to fight the Saxons further north. On the way, he was ambushed by the devil who threw a huge rock at him. Roland, having seen the danger coming, drew his sword Durandal and split the rock in two! Part of it fell at his feet, while the other fell back into the Meuse...

Do you know the legend of the Ladies of Meuse?

One of them tells that three sisters, Hodierne, Berthe and Ige, the three most beautiful daughters of the Count of Rethel, married the three sons of the Lord. Unfortunately, soon after, the three brothers met a tragic fate during the First Crusade. The day came when Godfrey of Bouillon and his followers captured Jerusalem, and the three sisters betrayed their late husbands with three knights of Hierges.
