Château Gaillard

Richard undertook the construction of Château Gaillard, the most advanced and expensive fortification in its day. A rain of blood- considered a bad omen- took place as the walls were raised. The omen might well have been for John; his brother's profligate spending saddled England with a crushing debt.
