The fall of castles

The first castles were made in England by William the Conqueror and the Normans in 1089.
There were more then 21 different types of workers in castles this included blacksmiths, woodworkers, keepers, and many more.
The kings controlled the people inside the castles until 1215 when king john had to sign the Magna Carta which gave kings in the future limited power.
In 1494 French King Charles the VIII invaded and with the modern technology he had he easily bombarded and destroyed most of the castles there and left them in ruins.
Now today most of the castles today lie in ruins and are often visited by tourists and the closest thing you'll get to a castle today is a palace.
