Pembroke Castle  photo, Pembroke Castle

The first castle at Pembroke was the work of Roger de Montgomery, a powerful Norman lord who seized the area after the death of Rhys ap Tewdwr in 1093. Much of the huge fortress we see today is the work of William Marshall, first Earl of Pembroke, who gained the castle when Henry I married him to the heiress Isabel de Clare. The well preserved state of the fortress we see now is thanks to the efforts of Major-General Sir Ivor Philipps.
