Tomb of William the Conqueror - William was buried in the monastery of St.Stephen at Caen in Normandy. A stone slab with a Latin inscription, in the abbey church of Caen today marks the burial place of the first Norman King of England. His grave has since been desecrated twice, in the course of the French Wars of Religion his bones were scattered across Caen, and during the tumultuous events of the French Revolution, the Conqueror's tomb was again despoiled.

Tonbridge Castle is located in Tonbridge Kent England. In the 1000' s Richard Fitz Gilbert was granted land in Kent to guard the crossing of the River Medway. He erected a simple Motte-and-bailey castle on the site. In 1088 the de Claire family (descendants of Gilbert) rebelled against William ll. His army besieged the castle and after two days the castle fell and the King, as punishment, had both the castle and the town burnt to the ground. Before 1100 the de Clare's replaced the wooden castle with stone. The twined towered gatehouse was built by Richard de Claire which took 30 years, and in 1295 a stone wall was built around the town. The castle remained uninhabited between 1521 and the late 18th century except a short period during the civil war. The Mansion was added in 1793. The site was purchased by the local council in 1900 who now use the mansion as offices and the grounds were made into a public park.

It is fun to visit them. Falaise is a small but busy town and there are superb views from the chateau so a visit is highly recommended. The town is on the N158 from Caen and is easy to reach

There are a lot of rumors & inaccuracies concerning Duke William's proposal to Matilda of Flanders; Tracy Borman dispels them all in her biography of Matilda, 'Queen of the Conqueror.' What IS certain is that their marriage was a rare medieval love-match, as well as a successful working partnership. Matilda was an exceptionally active Queen Consort, setting the precedent for all Queens of England after her. IMAGE: Matilda of Flanders, NPG.
Windsor Castle is a medieval castle and royal residence in Windsor in the English county of Berkshire, notable for its long association with the British royal family and for its architecture.
