Gruyère Castle

The castle of the Counts of Gruyère was entangled in the disputes between Savoy, Burgundy, Bern and Freiburg in the fifteenth century. Gruyère was a vassal of Savoy, but Gruyère chose the side of Bern and Freiburg in 1475 (during the wars against Burgundy). Freiburg became the new owner after the bankruptcy of the last count in 1554.
