Castle Coloring Pages
Long time ago, back in the Medieval period, castles were not only used as a hold and fortress but also a private living space for an important person, namely kings - with the princes and princesses - and lords. Of course, not all lords could afford having a castle of their own. Many castles found in Europe and the vast land of Middle East were built during a specific time called Middle Ages. It started from 5th century to 15th century. Some of the discovered castles were believed to be a set of simple enclosures, while some others were built as great palaces using solid stones. From the safety of his castle, a lord may have controlled his land. The castle also acted as a safe house for his family and wealth, protecting them from his rivals while he was fighting a war for his king. Right under the towers of the castles were usually stairs leading to dungeon to imprison any criminal caught under his authority.
As fascinating as they were, many castles are no more than ruined rubble today. There used to be hundreds of castles in Britain alone, but now only few survive.
