It´s not castle Cesky Sternberk (property of Sternberg family), but Sternberk (in Moravia, before WW2 owned by Liechtenstein family) - little confusing, I know:

Of course I visited Mikulov and Libochovice - I was looking for Dietrichstein portraits there:) Family tree and portraits in Mikulov are wonderful. Now part of them is also on website of Mikulov museum: http://www.rmm.cz/dietrichstein/index.html (just click on names)

Thank you beladona
Now I remember, when I visited mikulov, seeing the huge wine barrel there I took a picture of it.
Since I am in Prague often I love to visit the most castles as I can and learn about Czech nobility
If you don't mind to pm me and suggest anything ?I speak Czech and got not many books but started with Pribehy cesky slechty and Navraty  cesky slechty.
Thank you

Unfortunately,all I know is that the portrait painter is Philipp Alexius de Laszlo!

Hope this helps...
