This is the FIRST in a series of GREAT CASTLES Tournaments.
A CASTLE (from Latin: castellum) is a private fortified residence of a lord or noble. This is distinct from a palace, which is not fortified; from a fortress, which was not always a residence for nobility; and from a fortified settlement, which was for the public defense.
Each famous CASTLE has a rich history of battles, murders and mysterious deaths.
Enjoy your games, but remember to Castle Early and Castle Often!
