    The story of the origin of the name Weibertreu states that when the castle was besieged in earlier times, the castle dwellers did not want to give up. The besiegers finally allowed the women and children free withdrawal with everything they could carry on their backs. The faithful women of Weinsberg took their men on their backs and carried them out of the castle. 😘

    The ruins Weibertreu is the ruin of a probably built in the early 11th century hill castle in the town of Weinsberg in the district of Heilbronn in Baden-Württemberg.
    The castle is known by the eponymous "Good Women's Incident" of 21 December 1140, when after the surrender of the beleaguered castle, the women (later called "Loyalty Weiber von Weinsberg") saved their men from execution by setting them on down the mountain on the back.
    Due to its exposed location in the southwestern corner of the Weinsberg Cross of the Federal Motorways 6 and 81, the castle ruins are known to many motorists by sight. It is located northwest and above the city center on the 272.2 m above sea level. NHN high castle hill, which today is almost completely used for viticulture. Owner of the facility, which can be visited against admission, is the Justinus-Kerner-Verein and Frauenverein Weinsberg.
    Weinsberg Castle was probably built for military purposes in the early 11th century. It becomes tangible for the first time in the founding history (founded around 1430) of the Chorherrenstift Öhringen, founded in 1037, which reports that the founder, Countess Adelheid von Metz and von Egisheim, lived until the foundation at Weinsberg Castle. Countess Adelheid was in the first marriage the mother of Emperor Konrad II and is therefore referred to as the ancestral mother of the Salierhaus. In her second marriage she was the mother of Bishop Gebhard III. from Regensburg.
