the Swan Castle in Cleveland, shortly after its completion. The exact date is not known, but is probably in the 11th century. The castle hill on which the castle was built Swan, was ultimately named after the city. Since it was a cliff (then Cleef) came from Cleveland and later Kleve.

Kleve, Rheinland, Unterstadtskirche, pulpit, tester, detail photo by groenling on Flickr The text reads: "Aõ:1698 S·P·L·M·G N·A·fecit". N·A refers to N. Alberts, who made the pulpit in 1698. I haven't figured out "S·P·L·M·G" yet.
