Product Description

Synopsis

Windsor Castle is the largest and oldest occupied castle in existence. It is the home of the Queen, and with its skyline of battlements, turrets and great Round Tower it is instantly recognisable throughout the world. Visitors have been admitted to the Castle since the eighteenth century, and in this flowing and well-researched account John Martin Robinson traces the building's 1,000 years of history. He describes how William the Conqueror's impenetrable fortification became in time a medieval hunting lodge, a private retreat and a magnificent State residence. His final chapter describes the official engagements that form part of the Queen's diary each year, and for this new, expanded edition he also includes a full account of the much-praised restoration work that was carried out after the fire in 1992. New illustrations have also been added to the final chapter, and throughout the book there are excellent reproductions of the priceless works of art that form part of the Royal Collection and the superb rooms in which they are displayed.

The author's lively writing style and the wide variety of the illustrations make this title both an ideal introduction to the history of the Castle and an attractive souvenir for the many visitors of all nationalities who come to Windsor each year.

3.0 out of 5 stars Windsor review 17 Aug 2007
By L. W. Castello - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful book with a fair amount of historical information; however, I know the history was not as thorough as it could have been. I also didn't like that it had more drawings than actual photographs. Still, the photos they did have were gorgeous as were some of the drawings. I would still recommend it to people with interests in this field.

It's hard to imagine living in a castle now but it also must have been hard living in a castle back in the days when castles were necessary.
