Today, Roquemaure, France is a pleasant village located in the Rhone River valley about 20 miles inland from the Mediterranean Sea. How the village became so named is not known, but presumably our ancestors had something to do with it.
It is located in a region of France well known for its wine making. One of its most well-known and prominent landmarks is The Castle. Known since the 12th century, all that remains of it are the vestiges from the surrounding walls, a circular tower known as the Queen’s tower, and a high square tower known as the tower of the Princes de Soubise.
