Frequently asked question about Castle

What function did a castle have in the past?
Castles used to have various functions, such as a (military) refuge or a home for a family or group of people. This distinguishes a castle from a palace (which is not fortified), from a fortress (which is not a residence of a noble) and from a walled city (collective defense).
What is the difference between a palace and a castle?
Today the word 'castle' has a more general meaning. We usually use it to indicate a house of a nobleman. The nobility usually did not live in a fortress or palace, but in a castle. With 'palace' we indicate the residence of a reigning monarch or royal family.
What types of castles are there?
City Castles: This is a noble residence in an average city. It is a defensible tower or house that housed someone important such as a knight or nobleman.

< b>Concentric castle: This kind of castle originated from the crusades. The people in the Crusades encountered such fortresses in the Middle East. In a concentric fortress, the important buildings are located in the middle, in the courtyard. A solid wall or moat has been built around it for defence.

Ringwalburcht: This is one of the oldest kind of castles. This was often a settlement, inn or other building surrounded by an often wooden wall for protection only. So it was not actually a traditional castle as we recognize it today.
What types of castles are there?
Residential tower or donjon: This is a heavily fortified tower that could serve as both a residence and a place of last refuge. The keep was very heavily guarded and difficult to take. Often the keep was used as part of a castle, but there are also examples in which a keep is used as a separate castle.

Motte: A highly secured castle that was built on an excavated hill, giving tactical advantages. A motte was often accompanied by a few Donjons and at the bottom there was often a forecourt with a few stables.

Moated castle or moated castle: One of the most common types of castles. Moated castles are always surrounded by a moat or some other form of water (for example a lake) and have only a few defensive walls as the main defenses. Inside, there was often a courtyard surrounded by outbuildings and the castle.
When can you call a castle a castle?
The two most important conditions for calling a building a castle are ‘habitability’ and ‘defensibility’. Other requirements are that a castle was built before 1800, is located in a non-urban environment, has a knightly character and is the center of a seigneury or large estate.
When were most castles built?
Most castles were built before 1800, if the castle was built after that time, it may not officially be called a castle.
Why do most castles have a moat?
The main task of the moat was to prevent the enemy from approaching the castle or fortress in order to storm the battlements with the help of ladders.
