Rather interesting Windsor facts
Did you know Windsor Castle is the largest inhabited castle in the world? Successive monarchs from William the Conqueror onwards have had a hand in extending and altering the building. What began as a motte and bailey fortress to dominate the Thames metamorphosed over centuries – George IV in particular employing the architect Jeffry Wyatt (soon to rename himself the sexier Wyattville) to make changes a Disney designer would blush at – extra crenellations, more oriel windows, and another 30 feet or more on the Norman round tower.
