Duke Peter was in the habit of taking a morning walk around the lakeside at dawn. He ,as ever ,was accompanied by his two faithful deer hounds. The walk had started in the usual fashion when a calamity struck! A stone gargoyle in the shape of a griffin ( an heraldic beast that features in the Coat of Arms of the Duchy) plunged from the castle roof and narrowly missed Duke Peter! After calming his dogs, the Duke carefully removed the gargoyle dust from his coat and carried on with the walk. Surely an unfortunate accident had occurred?
