Day Eighteen

Sent by: STALKER2

Notes: This is Niasvizh (or Nesvizh) Castle.  According to the sender, Philip, it is the most mysterious castle in Belarus because of the legend of the Black Lady.  I was able to find a bit about the legend.  Supposedly the Black Lady is Barbara Radziwill, who was married to King Sigismund II Augustus.  He married her for love, which angered his mother, who wanted a more politically beneficial marriage.  The legend says that his mother poisoned Barbara, and so her ghost haunts the castle.
