Grosmont Castle- Lady Joan Plantagenet, Baroness de Mowbray born here 1310

Dunstanburgh Castle, Northumberland, England, built in 1313 by Thomas Plantagenet, Second Earl of Lancaster. Thomas fell into disfavor with his cousin King Edward II who had him executed for treason in 1322. The executioner must have had a bad day because it took him 11 strokes to ultimately decapitate Thomas. The Earls' ghost has been spotted around the castle carrying his mangled head. The ghost of Margaret of Anjou, wife of King Henry VI, has also been spotted wandering the castle grounds.
