Details

Surveying more than 60 residences of the crowned heads and royal dukes of countries involved in the Hundred Years War, this illustrated study investigates whether the castles, palaces and manor houses of the War’s protagonists reflect a defensive purpose, a social function or the personality of the builders. After an introduction to the military, political and architectural background, the book discusses residences in France and England, but also in Scotland, Flanders and the Iberian Peninsula, during the period 1330 to 1483.
