Château d'Ars is currently in the town of Ars in Charente near Cognac, dates from the seventeenth century. The Lordship of Ars, dowry of Jeanne d'Ars, Ars lady and Balanzac, who married in 1340 with William Bremond, 3rd name, remained in the family Bremond d'Ars until the late nineteenth century. In this alliance, the land of Ars remained in the possession of the house of Bremond who at the same time, retained the name.
He received the title of Marshal of the camps and the king's armies. He married the castle Mad Love Mary Guillememette of Verdelin lady Mad Love (1606 to 1687). While Jean-Louis Bremond d'Ars Cognac defended besieged by the slingers, his wife Guillemette locked in the castle was defending.
