Launceston Castle dates from the early years of the Norman Conquest. Towering over the town, it is a reminder of the power of the Earls (later Dukes) of Cornwall. Built by William the Conqueror's half-brother, Count Robert of Mortain, the castle was extensively remodeled by Richard, Earl of Cornwall, in the mid-thirteenth century.
