The imposing 11th century castle is hard to miss. Built in 1093, the original castle was built of wood by Earl Roger of Montgomery. It would be the next century when the imposing stone fortress would be built by William Marshall, Earl of Pembroke. Later, Henry VII, or Henry Tudor would be born and raised at Pembroke. However, once king, he would never return. But he did begin the tradition of calling Royal first born sons Prince of Wales.
