★ Styrum

Styrum was an immediate lordship in the Holy Roman Empire, located in mülheim an der Ruhr, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. It held no dieting and circumvened by the dominance of Broich.

The exact date of construction of the castle is unknown. Styrum was already prosperous in Frankish times, Charlemagne, to the end of the 8th century. In 1067 Styrum was given to the monastery in Kaiserswerth. After the murder of the Archbishop of Cologne, Engelbert of Berg, in 1225, the descendants of Frederick I of Isenberg gained the right of ownership of mülheim an der Ruhr and thereby of the castle lords of Styrum and took up residence. Here they founded the line of counts of Limburg-Styrum family, which would then to important estates in Westphalia and the lower Rhine. In connection with the section of the house of Limburg Styrum in 1644, Styrum passed to the line of Limburg-Styrum-Styrum.

Styrum was rebuilt in Baroque style in 1668, and it received its present form after a fire in 1738. Mediatization in 1806, Styrum came under the control of the Grand Duchy of Berg. The line Limburg-Styrum-Styrum died in 1809. The last count of the Styrum branch of the family, Ernst Maria Johan deceased on 23 March 1809 in his will dated 29 Jan 1808 donated Styrum to the sister of his own wife: Maria Margaretha von Humbracht, who sold it in 1825.

Styrum was acquired by German industrialist August Thyssen in 1890. His company gave the castle to the city of Cologne in 1960. She was turned into a restaurant, artists Studio and community center for the elderly in 1992.

The city Styrum is now part of the Mulheim an der Ruhr and Oberhausen. His local football team, FC Styrum, renamed to FC Cologne in 1975, was a success from the 1950s to the 1980s years, even playing in the 2. Bundesliga-Nord.

Called "Styrum" is derived from "Stiarhem" which means "bulls" of the house in the early medieval local dialect.
