0041881 Fotheringhay Castle

Fotheringhay Castle (also Fotheringay Castle)[1] was in the village of Fotheringhay 3 1a??2 miles (5.6A?km) to the north of the market town of Oundle, Northamptonshire, Britain. It was probably founded around 1100 by Simon de Senlis, Earl of Northampton. In 1113, possession passed to Prince David of Scotland when he married Simon's widow. The castle then descended with the Scottish princes until the early 13thA?century when it was confiscated by King John of England. It was a favoured residence of the Dukes of York, and King RichardA?III was born here in 1452.
It was also the final place of imprisonment of Mary, Queen of Scots, who was tried and executed in the castle in 1587
