Warwick Castle was originally built by William the Conqueror in 1068 after the Norman conquest of England.  He established a motte-and-bailey castle at Warwick to maintain control of the Midlands.  A motte-and-bailey castle consists of a mound with a tower and an enclosed courtyard.  William appointed Henry de Beaumont, the son of a powerful Norman family, as constable of the castle.  In 1088, Henry de Beaumont was made the first Earl of Warwick.  Many additions have been made to the structure over the years.  A section of the Norman structure remains, Ethelfleda's Mound.  Starting in 1068, the castle was the owned by the Earl of Warwick.  It was used as a fortified castle until converted into a country house in the 17th century.
