Nottingham Castle

King William I of England founded Nottingham Castle in 1068.

King Richard I the Lionheart used siege machinery to take Nottingham Castle from his brother, Prince John, who had seized power while Richard was on Crusade.

In 1170 King Henry III had a stone castle built on the same elevated site.
Nottingham Castle was established as the most important and formidable royal castle in the Midlands.

In 1330 King Edward III broke into the castle through a 300ft long subterranean passageway.
Edward surprised his mother, Queen Isabella, and Roger Mortimer, Earl of March.
The passageway is known as Mortimer's Hole.

William Cavendish, 1st Duke of Newcastle, and his son Henry, 2nd Duke of Newcastle, had a ducal mansion erected on the site in 1674-1679.
