Built at strategic points, and fitted with impressive fortifications, fortresses are thought to be impenetrable.
To protect his rich and strategic lands in France, the English king, Richard the Lionheart, decided to build and impregnable castle to bar the route along the River Seine, thus asserting his supremacy in Normandy. Four years later, France’s King Philip besieged the site at the head of an army of 6,000 men.
