Knightly Spirits of Malbork Castle

Malbork-Castle

Malbork Castle, Poland

I had the opportunity to do my first International Ghost Hunt…

…in Poland!

I toured Malbork Castle, home of the famous Teutonic Knights.

Not former home.

There are still Knights in residence at Malbork Castle, along with many other Castle Spirits.

I had one of the strongest visions that I’ve ever had the moment I approached the first Castle gate.

Malbork Castle Gate

I felt suspended in time.

The present slipped away as the people near me disappeared and I was surrounded by Knights on horseback.

The Knights were returning to the Castle, entering the main gate, as I was.

Teutonic Knights

There were four lead Knights on horseback and I was between them with two Knights on either side of me.

I felt small as I walked between them, but I never felt threatened.

I could feel the dirt being kicked up by the horses and the Knights were so close that I could hear the rustle of their clothing and the clanking of their armor.

There was a company of ancient travelers behind me.

As the realization dawned on me that I had been transported to another time and I was surrounded by ancient Knights, I was in awe.

I stopped walking to gather myself and as I absorbed this new reality, the vision disappeared.

The Knights let me know, before I even entered the castle, that they were still very much in residence at Malbork.

Later, I had a vision of an ancient tomb.

A body was lovingly wrapped in armor and placed in the tomb. A large stone slab covered the revered Knight. There were carvings and ornamentations on top of the tomb. I was then shown the place where I had visited the Knights tombs on the Castle grounds.

They were showing me that the Knights buried at Malbork Castle still protect their sacred home.

These weren’t the only visions at Malbork Castle.

 While touring the kitchen area, I felt a plump, angry Chef.

She was still furious with her husband because of his affair with a beautiful young maid.

Their doomed love story is told below.

I was able to capture several interesting photos at Malbork Castle.

This photo appears to have a Hooded Figure peering out of the window.

 This ghostly image has a face.

While I was in the Chapel, I was “urged” to take a picture of the seats along the side wall and I got this bright Orb…

The Spirits were practically screaming at me to take a picture here and a bright Orb was in the photo.

 The Chapel was filled with Spirits. I also captured these bright Orbs…

I got several bright Orbs on this mural.

 In the Great Meeting Hall I got an Orb on the Throne…

 As I was preparing to leave the Castle grounds, this beautiful butterfly landed in front of me.

 The butterfly is a symbol of resurrection. Perhaps the Knights of Malbork were reinforcing their message to me.

They did not die.

They were transformed and still reside at Malbork Castle.

Words from the Other Side:

Different, Magic, Eddy, Unhappy, Young, Meal, Secret, Dirty

Warm, Willing, Flames, Location, Skill, Shadow, Birds, Bit  

 There is nothing different about their sad tale. The magic had gone out of the marriage. The Chef and her husband, Eddy, went through the motions of being married, but when a young maid arrived at the Castle, Eddy was awestruck, and fell in love.

The maid squealed in delight as a handsome Knight pulled her onto his horse and rode with her in front of him as he returned to the Castle. She only had eyes for the Knight and he returned her favor with a silver necklace, which she proudly wore. From the fine chain hung a pendant with a small Amber heart  and a silver feather. She belonged to the Knight, but Eddy grew more unhappy with each passing day and he coveted the young maid. As he worked alongside his wife in the kitchens, preparing each meal, he couldn’t hide his secret longing from his wife.

The Chef began to have murderous thoughts about the dirty affair she assumed her husband was having. She pictured the young maid as warm and willing to give herself to Eddy, and jealous flames ignited thoughts of revenge.

The Chef plotted a location for the demise of the lovers. She watched and waited for a chance to use her legendary skills with a carving knife. When the young maid crept into the shadows one evening to meet her Knight, she never made her rendezvous with him.

The birds in the forest were the only witnesses to the crime.

Eddy’s life ended soon after with the same bloody knife. Bits of the young maid’s blood mingled with his as the Chef returned to her post and resumed her baking with the murder weapon. When asked about her husband, the Chef angrily replied that he had run off with the young maid.

Secretly, the Chef smiled to herself as she felt the fine silver necklace with the Amber heart and silver feather beneath her apron.
