Built by King Edward I in 1283 as part of an “iron ring” of castles designed to surround Wales, keeping them from attacking England during their resistance to English rule. This mighty fortress took six years and an army of 950 masons, laborers and other craftsmen, to build. This castle played an important role in the Welsh uprising led by Owain Glyndwr, falling to his forces after a long siege in 1404, only to be retaken by English forces after another long siege in 1408. Sixty years later, during the War of the Roses, it again played a major military role during intense fighting; instrumental in the rise of the song “Men of Harlech.”
