Raudonė Castle

Local nameRaudonės pilis
LocationRaudonė, Lithuania

Raudonė Castle is a residential castle of the 19th century in Raudonė, Lithuania. Today it is used as a public school.

Bayersburg II Castle, an old Teutonic castle, stood here until the 16th century. The original castle is the setting of an East Prussian legend known as "The White Maiden of the Bayersburg". Raudonė was a royal manor, which Grand Duke Sigismund II August gave to Prussian merchant Krispin Kirschenstein. He built a Renaissance style manor house with a 110-foot cylindrical tower on the grounds of the old castle at the end of the 16th century.

The 18th century owners of the Raudonė estate, the Olędzki h. Rawicz family, members of Polish nobility, commissioned Laurynas Stuoka-Gucevičius \ Wawrzyniec Gucewicz to renovate the castle.
