The Burden of Castle Building

All this castle building placed a heavy burden on the kingdom. The nobles raided and harassed each other. Castles changed hands regularly, often through trickery. As rivals engaged in a constant round of destruction, they forced their people to work on the castle maintenance and rebuilding (Documents 12–19). The common people, forced to do the work, hated the castle builders.
