KQED Plus: Mon, May 12, 2014 -- 3:36 AM

Stretched along the bank of the River Nogat in modern-day Poland, Malbork Castle was built by an elite group knights during the Baltic Crusades. Its distinct brick architecture, soaring walls, and deadly battlements were built to intimidate the local population. In 1410, a pagan-turned-king marches on the castle, determined to put an end to the Teutonic Order's reign.

KQED Plus: Mon, May 12, 2014 -- 2:48 AM

Positioned the wilds of northern Wales, Conwy Castle was one of several strongholds raised by King Edward I to rule over the Welsh. Its mighty towers, elongated arrow slits and majestic water gate were built to intimidate. In 1294, a rebel force arrives to put the king's castles, and English domination, to the ultimate test. Would the welsh force headed by Madog ap Llewelyn, the last recognised native Prince of Wales succeed in taking the castle?

KQED Plus: Mon, May 12, 2014 -- 2:00 AM

Towering above the River Seine, Chateau Gaillard was built by King Richard I to assert England's authority over his French holdings.

Could its formidable defences repel the ambitions of Philip II, king of France?
