Grunsfoort Castle - Renkum

N 51.975511 / E 5.7182786

On the Grunsfoort meadow there are low stone structures. They indicate the size of the former Grunsfoort castle, an important castle in the Duchy of Gelre. That is where the white damselfly lived. She was the daughter of a hard and stingy nobleman and his daughter had much of his character. When she walked to the church on Sunday, the poor farmers had to make sure that there was a white linen carpet ready between the castle and the church. She didn't want to get her fine shoes dirty and especially not with the earth from the cemetery around the church. When she finally died, no one seemed to mourn her. She was buried by station by six barons because she was a noblewoman, but the next day the white lady stood in her coffin outside the cemetery. She was buried again, this time by the local farmers and a lot deeper than last time. But the next day the coffin was outside the fence again. She didn't want to touch the cemetery while she was alive, now the cemetery didn't want her anymore. Good advice was expensive. They decided to put the coffin on a cart with a horse in front of it and then see what happened. The horse ran away, kicked the cart off a stream and the coffin disappeared into the stream. But at full moon, when the moon turns the water white like a linen runner, you can see the damsel walking. Beware, then, for it was an unpleasant one...
