Arundel Castle is a restored and remodelled medieval castle in Arundel, West Sussex. It was established by Roger de Montgomery on Christmas Day 1067. Roger became the first to hold the earldom of Arundel by the graces of William the Conqueror. The castle was damaged in the English Civil War and then restored in the 18th and 19th centuries by Charles Howard the 11th Duke of Norfolk.
From the 11th century, the West Sussex castle has been the seat of the Earl of Arundel and, for over 400 years, the Duke of Norfolk. It is a Grade I listed building.
Since 1138 to the present day Arundel Castle and the Earldom of Arundel have passed by inheritance, in all but two or three generations in a direct male line, and with only two or three temporary forfeitures to the crown. Since the Aubigny family first acquired the castle progressive changes have been made and the castle has been re-structured to meet the requirements of modern times.
In 1139 the Empress Matilda was invited to stay at Arundel during her travels through West Sussex to press her claim to the English throne upon King Stephen. The apartments constructed to accommodate her and her entourage survive to this day.
In 1176 the 1st Earl of Arundel, died and Arundel Castle reverted to the crown, under King Henry II, who spent a vast amount of money re-structuring the iconic West Sussex building, mainly for domestic needs. When Henry died the castle remained a possession of his son and heir King Richard I, who offered it to the 3rd Earl of Arundel. The last in the Aubigny male line was the 5th Earl of Arundel, who died at an early age in 1243. When his sister and heiress married John FitzAlan of Clun, he became the 6th Earl of Arundel and inherited the castle. The FitzAlan family continued in an unbroken male line until 1580, but were twice temporarily deprived of their estates.
Upon the death of John FitzAlan, 7th Earl of Arundel, in 1272, Arundel Castle and the West Sussex earldom passed to his infant son Richard FitzAlan, 8th Earl of Arundel. Thirteen years later, King Edward I granted the 8th Earl the right to hold two fairs every year at Arundel with the right to impose taxation. This grant provided funding for much needed renovation of the castle, which had fallen into disrepair.
Once sufficient funds were available, the 8th Earl added the well tower and re-constructed the entrance to the keep. His son Edmund FitzAlan, 9th Earl of Arundel, was executed for his part in the rebellion against King Edward II. The West Sussex Castle was forfeited to the crown and was granted by the king to his half-brother Edmund of Woodstock, 1st Earl of Kent, the 6th son of Edward I by his second wife Margaret of France. Edmund of Woodstock was executed by Queen Isabella and her lover Mortimer for his support of her husband Edward II, and his widow and orphaned children, were placed under house arrest at Arundel Castle. The West Sussex castle and titles were restored to the FitzAlans four years later.
The FitzAlan male line ceased on the death of Henry FitzAlan, 19th Earl of Arundel, whose daughter and heiress Mary FitzAlan married Thomas Howard, 4th Duke of Norfolk, to whose descendants the castle and earldom passed. The crown seized Arundel upon his execution for conspiring to marry Mary, Queen of Scots, in 1572. The castle was later returned to his Howard heirs, the successor Earls of Arundel.
