The history of the palace in T├╝rkheim
In 1371 after Schwabegg Castle west of Schwabm├╝nchen was destroyed, T├╝rkheim took over the role of the main seat of the commanders of T├╝rkheim. Wolf Dietrich von Kn├Âringen, pawnee of the dominion had the Great Palace of T├╝rkheim built in the period from 1532 to 1535.
