|This article contains a translation of Châteaux cathares from fr.wikipedia.|
Weirwolfwikipedia added to the article the following paragraph:
- Several castles were, however, occupied by Cathar believers or by noblemen sympathetic to the Cathars. Such castles were attacked and destroyed by Simon de Montfort's "Albigensian Crusade", a dramatic example being the castle of Penne (Tarn) whose jagged ruins overlook the river Aveyron.
I have removed it, not because it is not important, but because it is confusing. The so-called "Cathar Castles", which this article concerns, have no historical connection with the Cathars at all; indeed they postdate them by many years. "Cathar Castles" is a modern tourism marketing term. The cathars did have fortified camps (castra) and de Montfort did destroy some (but not all) of these; this is mentioned in the individual entries where they exist. It might be an idea to list Penne under Other "Cathar castles" and, this being a castle that does not seem to have a Wiki article, write it up. Emeraude 12:21, 11 October 2007 (UTC)
