Certificates, Diplomas, Licenses, CVs / birth certificate expression
French term or phrase: né au château
This birth certificate says the child was "né au château", but does not specify a certain château (and, in this region, the château is reduced the the ruins of the tower that still stands), so does this really mean born in the castle/manor house or is it an archaic way of saying "born at home"? Or am I missing something? Thanks for your advice!
