Stolpen, Germany, where the duchess Cosel was imprisoned for 49 years. After he 'won' her as his mistress in a game of billiards, August the Strong imprisoned her for sitting at his right during a banquet. Silly girl, everyone knows the mistress sits on the left, and the queen on the right. After her release from the tower, she defied August again by remaining there.
