For those who are as passionate about our medieval history as me, I have added a new page on chitterne.com/history about William Longespee, 3rd Earl of Salisbury, husband of Ela, Countess of Salisbury, and lord of Chitterne in the 13th century.

I have been looking into Longespee’s background and discovered that besides being a superlative battle commander under three different kings he was also a bit of a castle collector! But, compared with his famous fighting exploits, his castle adventures turned out to be rather unsuccessful. To read more visit: http://www.chitterne.com/history/longespee.html
