Ludlow Castle III

By alwolf
In 1224 King Henry III of England met with Llywelyn ab Iorwerth, the Welsh prince and leader, at Ludlow to sign a treaty with the Archbishop of Canterbury, Stephen Langton as mediator.

Early in the 14th Century it was enlarged into a magnificent palace for Roger Mortimer, then the most powerful man in England.

In 1402 Edmund Mortimer, himself born at Ludlow Castle, set out from the castle with a large army to seek battle with the forces of Owain Glyndwr - he met them in the valley of the River Lugg at the Battle of Bryn Glas where he was defeated, captured and eventually allied himself to the Welsh rebel's cause, to the extent of marrying one of Glyndwr's daughters with whom he had four children, before starvation and death at the siege of Harlech Castle in 1409.

Last upload from my images of Ludlow,hope you all have a good week.

There's plenty of fine detail in this shot. The framing is great too.

Your study of this castle is just wonderful. I love the history too.

The light on this side of the castle has been well captured.

You should print these up and take them to Ludlow to see if you can sell them, they really are special.
