News Pictures – Historic castle goes on sale for £2.5m — News Exc Celebrity

 

Article and photos from hienalouca.com A castle built on top of a Royal household once dubbed ‘the most gorgeous in Christendom’ has gone on the market for £2.5million. Devizes Castle in Wiltshire was once owned by the Crown for around 500 years after it was claimed by King Stephen of Blois in the 1130s. The Grade I-listed building has lots of period features, such as castellations, turrets, stone mullioned windows, impressive fireplaces and oak floors. It was passed down through the Royal family over the years and was frequently visited by monarchs including King John, Henry III and Edward I, while Henry VIII gifted it to his first wife Catherine of Aragon, although it was later reclaimed after the divorce.
