Este duminică dimineața (ehh, e Luni seara acum, dar povestea a început duminică dimineața) și scumpul meu soț s-a gândit la o mini-vacanță de o zi. Așa am ajuns la Castelul Corvinilor. De mult timp ne-am dorit să îl vizităm dar cumva nu am avut timp.

Castelul este minunat, arhitectura este minunată, totul este minunat.

Dacă nu ați vizitat încă acest castel vă rog să o faceți.

Mai jos găsiți una din legendele castelului.

Legenda Corbului

Pe blazonul familiei Corvinilor este inscriptionat un corb care tine în cioc un inel de aur. Atribuirea acestui simbol al familiei are o legenda. Se spune cã Ioan de Hunedoara era fiu nelegitim al lui Sigismund de Luxemburg, rege al Ungariei, cu o frumoasa femeie din Tara Hategului, pe nume Elisabeta.

Pentru a o feri de necinste, regele îi da de sot pe unul din vitejii sai, Voicu, daruindu-i totodatã si un inel ca si dar pentru copilul nenascut, cu scopul de a fi recunoscut atunci când va creste si va merge la curtea regala. In timpul unei calatorii facuta de familia lui Voicu, poposind pentru a pranzi, inelul este uitat pe o margine a stergarului pe care erau puse merindele. Un corb, atras de stralucirea inelului îl fura încercând sa plece cu el. Copilul Ioan de Hunedoara ia un arc si sageteazã corbul, recuperand astfel inelul. Atunci cand creste si ajunge la curtea regala, povesteste aceastã patanie, iar regele, impresionat de aceasta istorie, decide ca simbolul familiei hunedorenilor sã fie corbul cu inel de aur în cioc.

De altfel, si numele familiei provine din latinescul „Corvus”, care inseamna „Corb”, o pasare care simboliza cu totul altceva în evul mediu, si anume întelepciunea si longevitatea.

It is Sunday morning (ehhh, it is Monday evening right now but the story started Sunday morning) and my husband has thought of a one day mini-holiday.

This is how we arrived to the Corvin Castle. For a long time we wanted to visit the Corvin Castle, but somehow we did not have the time.

The castle is amazing, the architecture is amazing, everything is amazing.

If you did not yet visit the Corvin Castle please do it.

The legend of the Hunyadi Castle:

The coat of arms of the Corvin family is a raven with a golden ring in its beak, and this family symbol has a legend. It is said that John Hunyadi was the illegitimate son of King Sigismund of Luxemburg and Hungary, and his mother was Elisabeta, a very beautiful woman from the Hateg region. In order not to dishonor her, the king married Elisabeta to one of his knights, Voicu. Sigismund also gave her a ring, as a gift for the unborn child, which will help him be recognized when he will go to the royal court.

The legend says that during a trip, the family halted for lunch, but when they were not paying attention, a raven stole the ring, attracted by its shine. That’s when John Hunyadi took a bow and shot the raven in order to get the ring back. When he heard the tale, the King was deeply impressed, so he decided that the family’s symbol will be a raven with a golden ring in its beak. During a family trip, when they halted for lunch, the ring was forgotten on a side of the towel where the food was placed. A raven, attracted by the shining of the ring stole it.

Moreover, the name of the Corvin family comes from the Latin word of “Corvus”, which means “Raven”.
