Medemblik, Netherlands II - LesleyBray

Radboud Castle, Medemblik. The name of the castle derives from King Radboud (679-719). It is believed he had built a stronghold in Medemblik on the exact same spot as the castle - however he could not have built this castle, since there were no buildings of stone made in those days in the Netherlands. The actual builder of this castle is Count Floris V who was murdered in 1296.
