In 1546, Maria, Regent of the Habsburg Netherlands, commissioned a hunting lodge in the woods of Morlanwelz. The place would be littered with frescos, murals and sculptures by Jacques Dubrล“ucq.
In 1554, Henri II of France invaded the land and torched the castle - an act of revenge after Habsburg troops destroyed his favourite residence Folembray -. Efforts were made to rebuild the place, but the castle was left as a sort of ruin.
