CASTLES OF THE ORDERS

 

 

  Below is a brief snapshot of the castles built, manned, and defended by the various Military Orders throughout Christendom. Castles were the ultimate statement that an Order was to hold influence over an area. Their construction could take just a few months, to many years depending on terrain, resources, planning, and unforeseen acts of the enemy or Mother Nature.
