Monmouth Castle

UK»Wales»Gwent»Monmouth Castle

For the 11th century and 12th century the town and surrounding areas were ruled by Norman French lords after the conquest of England by William the Conqueror in 1066. During this time, Monmouth Castle [6] was built, in 1067 under William Fitz-Osbern of Breteuil, Normandy, a significant castle-builder, holding commanding views over the surrounding area from a sound defensive site. Initially it would have been a motte and bailey castle, rebuilt in stone and later refortified and developed over time.
