Windsor is a small town on the banks of the Thames in the county of Berkshire. Site of Windsor Castle, an official royal residence and the largest occupied castle in the world.
A wooden castle was built upon the present site by Guillaume le Bâtard (William the Conqueror) in 1070, but the current stone structure was started in the 1170's by Henry II. It has been added to by almost every monarch since.
Charles I was held there before his trial and his body was buried in St George's Chapel.
The castle was severely damaged in a fire in 1992, but was restored by 1997
