In 1077, Henri the IVth, emperor of Germany traveled to Italy to ask the Pope for his forgiveness. Passing through Lausanne, he asked for Bishop Broucard's help to accompany him to Carossa via the Mont-Joux (today the Grand St.-Bernard) pass. Forgiven, upon his return he rewarded the Bishop by offering him Lavaux of Lutry in Corsier and by naming him Prince. The Bishop thereon became responsible for the road linking France to Italy. He therefore in 1150 undertook the building of a dungeon in St.-Saphorin. These were the first stones of this Castle, which became the centre of the little seigniory of St.-Saphorin.
