Gwyned - Wales

This stone fortress, atop a rocky promontory, was probably built early in

the 13th century by Llywelyn ap Iowerth.

By about 1283 King Edward I had taken the castle in his second Welsh campaign and had made many improvements, adding another tower to the wall of the inner ward, heightening the two gatehouse towers and strengthening the engine tower which served as a platform for a catapult or Trebuchet.

In 1404 during the Welsh rebellion against the English the castle was taken

by Owain Glydwr and put to the torch.
