Great photo's! Thanks!

"Bouillon, Belgium. The castle of Godfried of Bouillon, leader of the first crusade (1099)
ruler of the kingdom of Jeruzalem"

Concerning Godfried, I think everyone shoud take the time to read about him and his acts! Certainly one of the best stories ever told!

There are a large number of castles and citadels in Iran, for example look at this one which is said to be built in the Sassanid period and was inhabited until 150 years ago: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rayen_Castle - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rayen_Castle
 
 
Rayn Citadel in Kerman
 
It has all characteristics of a medieval Persian city, there are residental houses, stores, bazaar, military units, squares, fortress, religious buildings, Zurkhaneh (traditional Persian gymnasium), stables, schools, ... It also consists of the public quarter and the aristocratic zone.

The castle posted above had Vlad Tepes /Vlad Dracula as guest . He was imprisoned there for some time.

 
More castles.
 
In the middle of Gent, Belgium. Castle Gravensteen (built by the Counts of Flanders c. 1100 AD ) :
 

 

 

The below castle (Urquhart , 1300's)  is ruined but that  does not hurt the reputation of the lake at all. Loch Ness, Scotland:

No Sander, Hunedoara castle actually has no connection with Vlad Tepes. It was built by Hunyad-Corvin family of (Romanian-Hungarian) Transylvanian nobles in 14-15th centuries.

This is Poienari, a castle (14-15th centuries) completed and inhabited by Vlad Tepes:

About my statement he was imprisoned there; such is widely claimed by many (internet) sources. For example :

Few people know that Hunedoara is actually the castle where Vlad the Impaler, the man who gave inspiration to Hollywood's version of Dracula, was imprisoned during the fifteenth century…

Leaving his calling card - the impaling stick - Vlad turned back but only to find the Ottoman troops ready to attack and capture him. Vlad could not be subdued by the armies and his stepbrother Radu was left to fight the Ottoman troops. The Hungarians gave up on Vlad and had one of their men, Matthias Cornivus, imprison Vlad in Hunedoara castle for crimes against the Turks...

http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/1874717/hunedoara_draculas_castle_of_imprisonment.html - www.associatedcontent.com/article/1874717/hunedoara_draculas_castle_of_imprisonment.html
 
 
But that version might be merely popular stuff. I checked a few professional papers and they  speak of an imprisonment elsewhere. The paper below (Nandris 1966 )for example states he was imprisoned in Buda , Hungary :
 
 
...
Moreover, the revenge of the Transylvanian Saxons created for him a "bad press" in the West and caused his imprisonment in Buda by order of Matthias Corvinus (1458-1490). It is of interest to mention that under this king the Szeklers (Sâcui), who had been settled in the eastern corner of Transylvania as frontier guards, revolted in 1461, 1463, and 1465 against the abuses of the king and tried to reduce his authority…..
 
Source :

Grigore Nandris. “The Historical Dracula: The Theme of His Legend in the Western and in the Eastern Literatures of Europe.”  Comparative Literature Studies, Vol. 3, No. 4 (1966), pp. 367-396  Penn State University Press (quoted passage is from p. 371)

 
I rephrase my statement to “ many sources claim Vlad Tepes was imprisoned at Hunedoara castle , but other ones claim another location".

 
More castles coming up...

The mention of the family who used the Raven as their symbol (Corvus, Corvin, Corvinus, etc.) is interesting. As I have suggested in other places, I feel this symbol, as sometimes, and mostly by accident, given the atrribution of being an Eagle! And, even the famous "bicephalous" ones!

Example; http://www.ville-munster68.fr/histoire_patrimoine/en/iso_album/aigle_bicephale_(gif)_1.gif

I make this statement because the Raven and its cousins, are the birds that first come to a battle field, to feed upon the dead! I even believe that they are also believed to eat the eyes of the dead first!

Needless to say such activities would have tended to make this strange and intelligent bird, attractive to warriors! And, thus to the adoption of this as a warrior symbol!

Just my two cents worth!

It is a shame to see so many of these old structures with trees growing from them! The tree roots, are slowly weakening the structures and will eventually undermine all of the walls, leaving only a jumble of stones!

Such a shame! Well we will at least have photos!

Thanks for all of the great ones already posted!

Were any eagles or corvus found in the above city?

This is Colchester Castle. It was built in 1069 on the foundations of an ancient Roman temple using bricks and stone from ruined Roman buildings. During the Civil war Matthew Hopkins interrogated witches here and in 1648 two Cavaliers were executed after the castle's capture:

The link will take you to images of the Hearst Castle in California, USA.  It is not old compared to everyone else's castles, and it was not needed for defense.   But it is a good example of what money can buy when you have enough of it.

Boy oh boy, have I enjoyed the posts above! It is wonderful!

The USA, has some forts, but they were mostly never tested in real battles. Thus I must resort to posting some fortresses in Europe. But forgive me, I know not how to transport photos to this site, so I will have to but give you the internet addresses.

I would suggest that all of you look up certain word searches, that include "fortress", "Vauban", etc.

So, I will mostly leave you to your own devices and search engines.

North America has the Citadel at Quebec, Fort San Marcos in Saint Augustine Florida, and, of course, Castillo San Cristobal and Castillo San Felipe del Morro in San Juan, Puerto Rico. These last two were part of the largest Spanish defenses in the Americas, in conjunction with El Morro castle in Havana, Cuba, and San Felipe de Barajas castle in Cartagena, Colombia, and San Lorenzo castle at the mouth of the Chagras River on the Caribbean side of Panama, all of which are still standing.

Ft. San Marcos.  It's outside of Charleston SC.  Castillo San Marcos is in St Augustine Florida, it was completed ca. 1688.  It's in pristine condition, Ft San Marcos is only ruins.
 
                        
 
Castillo De San Marcos as it looks today.  I was there in the mid 60's.  The fort's outer defenses have been rebuilt since then.
It was first attacked in 1702, and again in 1740.  It was never taken.

Krasznahorka Castle is not the only castle to be devastated by fire
 
Windsor Castle in Berkshire, in southern England, is one of the homes of the Royal Family.  It is the largest inhabited castle in the world, and has been occupied since the reign of Henry I in the 12th Century.  It withstood a prolonged siege during the First Barons' War at the start of the 13th Century.
 
 
But back on Friday 20th November 1992, many must have thought this huge castle was lost forever when it was devastated by fire. 

The fire began in The Queen's Private Chapel when a spotlight ignited a curtain.  The major part of the State Apartments was soon ablaze putting at risk one of the world's greatest collections of art.

It wasn't until 8pm that night that the blaze was finally under control, but a further three hours until it was extinguished.   Firemen removed furniture and works of art from the endangered apartments, including a 150-foot long table, and a 120-foot long carpet from the Waterloo Chamber, to the safety of the castle Riding School. Also removed, in an enormous logistics exercise, were 300 clocks, a collection of miniatures, many thousands of valuable books and manuscripts, and old Master drawings from the Royal Library.  On fire officers' instructions heavy chests and tables were left behind. All items were placed on giant sheets of plastic on the North Terrace and in the Quadrangle, and the police called in dozens of removal vans from a large part of the Home Counties to carry items to other parts of the Castle.
 
 
There had been no serious injuries, and no deaths. Dean Lansdale (aged 21), a decorator in the Private Chapel, was burnt while removing pictures (of which he had rescued three). He was moved to the royal surgery, and then to hospital.  Christopher Lloyd, the Surveyor of The Queen's Pictures, suffered a suspected heart attack, while five firemen were taken to hospital, two with hypothermia, three with minor burns and dust in their eyes.

The major loss was to the fabric of the Castle. The false roof above St George's Hall and the void beneath the floors for coal trucks had allowed the fire to spread. It burnt as far as the Chester Tower. Several ceilings collapsed. Apartments burnt included the Crimson Drawing Room (which was completely gutted), the Green Drawing Room (badly damaged, though only partially destroyed, by smoke and water), and The Queen's Private Chapel (including the double-sided nineteenth century Henry Willis organ in the gallery between St George's Hall and Private Chapel, oak panelling, glass, and the altar).

St George's Hall partially survived, with the wall largely intact, but with the ceiling collapsed. The State Dining Room (in the Prince of Wales Tower; which was badly damaged, as was the fabric of the tower), and the Grand Reception Room (80% severely damaged, though 20% of the ceiling was eventually saved) were also devastated.

Smaller apartments damaged or destroyed (and over 100 rooms were involved in the fire) included the Star Chamber, Octagon Room, Brunswick Tower, Cornwall Tower, Prince of Wales Tower (badly damaged), Chester Tower (badly damaged), Holbein Room, and the Great Kitchen (which lost its plaster cove, and most of its mediæval timber).

The external wall above the bay window of the Crimson Drawing Room (between the Prince of Wales and Chester Towers) was seriously calcified.

The Waterloo Chamber was undamaged, as were the Grand Vestibule, Rubens Room, Ante-Throne Room, Throne Room, Ball Room, Serving Room, and China Closet (which was not affected although it was surrounded by the fire). Overall some 80% of the area of the staterooms was undamaged.

Fortuitously the seven most seriously damaged rooms had largely been emptied the previous day for rewiring. The Castle had just completed an 18-month phase of rewiring in most of the rooms destroyed.

Items from the Royal Collection lost included the Sir http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Beechey - equestrian portrait http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_III_of_the_United_Kingdom - at a Review, which was too large to remove from its frame; a large late 1820s sideboard by Morel and Seddon (18 feet long); several pieces of porcelain; several chandeliers; as well as the Willis organ; and the 1851 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Exhibition - Axminster carpet partly burnt.

The first, structural, stage of the restoration was completed May 1996. Final fitting out, which was originally planned to finish by spring 1998, occurred on 17th November 1997.
 
1992 was a bad year for the Queen.  Known as her "Annus Horribilis", it was not only the year of the Windsor Castle fire but was also the year in which her son Prince Charles announced that he and Princess Diana were to separate; her second son the Duke of York and his wife the Duchess of York announced they were to separate, too (and scandalous pictures of the Duchess kissing another man appeared in the tabloids); and, believe it or not, it was the year her daughter the Princess Royal divorced her husband Captain Mark Phillips.  The year also saw the Princess of Wales' tell-all book, Diana, Her True Story, being published.

Trading Posts and Fortifications on Genoese Trade Routes

 from the Mediterranean to the Black Sea

"In the middle of 13th century, Genoeses were actively trading all over Mediterranean and Black Sea. Genoeses were originally inhabitant of Genoa, the city and Mediterranean seaport in north-western Italy. It was the capital of Genoa Province and of Liguria region.

In the eastern Mediterranean, Genoeses was greatly advanced by the Treaty of Nymphaeum (1261) with the Byzantine emperor Michael VIII Palaeologus, in exchange for the aid to the Byzantine reconquest of Constantinople, actually ousted the Venetians from the straits leading to the Black Sea.

As general Genoeses had possessions from 11th century to 19th century for nearly eight centuries over Mediterranean and Black Sea. Their main hub in Anatolia was Galata (Pera) in İstanbul.
