WHITE CASTLE (Welsh : Castell Gwyn), also known historically as LLANTILIO CASTLE, is a ruined castle near the village of Llantilio Crossenny in Monmouthshire , Wales . The fortification was established by the Normans in the wake of the invasion of England in 1066, to protect the route from Wales to Hereford . Possibly commissioned by William fitz Osbern , the Earl of Hereford , it comprised three large earthworks with timber defences. In 1135, a major Welsh revolt took place and in response King Stephen brought together White Castle and its sister fortifications of Grosmont and Skenfrith to form a lordship known as the "Three Castles ", which continued to play a role in defending the region from Welsh attack for several centuries. King John gave the castle to a powerful royal official, Hubert de Burgh , in 1201. Over the next few decades, it passed back and forth between several owners, as Hubert, the rival de Braose family, and the Crown took control of the property
