Windsor Castle was founded by William The Conqueror as part of a ring of defences around London. The first castle was a motte and bailey fortification, which consisted of a wooden fort built on top of a high mound. William the Conqueror's youngest son, Henry I was the first monarch to build a residence within the Upper Bailey, where the royal residence remains today.
