As their time at Guedelon Castle in France draws to an end, the team look at the castle's place in the wider medieval world.

Thirteenth-century Europe was a busy, developing, connected place, where work, trade, pilgrimages and crusades gave people the opportunity to travel across the continent and beyond.

From Elizabeth II to Cleopatra, Real Royalty peels back the curtain to give a glimpse into the lives of some of the most influential families in the world, with new full length documentaries posted every week covering the monarchies of today and all throughout history.

  • Ay the speed their going it would take a hundred yours to build just one castle . Just to gather the materials need would take for ever, and where did they store the material? How did they get it? Did they have a steady Suply coming everyday from Lowes to the top of a cliff? A few people with horse un carriage did all this all over the world right? Why? Who is going to invade a castle on top of a cliff in the middle of absolutely no where ? How would they even get to it? if you want to kill the king just wait till he is out and about somewhere? There is a history page that's missing, some one tore it out to hide real facts . It makes no sense at all just like any of the history they cram down everyones throats , its all fake . Don't believe it? Why was Tarteria whipped clean of the maps? It was only the biggest territory in the world ? But do you know anything about it? Does anyone?

I feel bad for the people that devoted their life to government funded history and science but enough is enough. I don't want this fake Hollywood funded and acted out nonsense to come on after a video i chose. Each time it happens i report it as spam misleading because anyone with a brain under the age of 65 has debunked years ago, damn near a decade now. Please youtube if youll protect pedows to the point where your average human can't even comment the word to raise awareness without being silenced then at least give the kids a history that the earth shows and isnt connected to fairytale garbage.

    • @LostAmericanHistory well there's nothing wrong with making oneself happy. I can relate because just researching history & attempting to re-create the amazing woodworking craftsmanship of that era is something that makes me happy as well. It would be truly incredible to visit place & time to experience medieval Europe not having to worry about any medical related issues (& possibly being able to understand what they're saying in Latin, Old French & Old English).

      David RustyLouisDavid RustyLouisMånad sedan
    • @David RustyLouis that is true, medical would be one thing that would be hard to give up. The things that killed so easily is nothing to us now. A lot of their ways seemed so primitive to us but my family has been trying to get back to that (growing 100% own food, self sufficient) for years now. We really underestimate how much they knew just to survive. It takes years to get good at gardening, know when its going to frost, what to grow and how to grow it. These people had it down pat. What I've found, the further my family gets from mainstream way of life, the closer and happy we are though.

Except they would rob from the rich gift to the poor just like Robin Hood did he except fortune comes where the sheriff would’ve actually been Genghis Khan and we had a spy that warned my family in time and we were able to leave our castle and flee into the mountains and surrounding areas and get away from him and his troops that’s being the reason I am here today because if my family would’ve been killed off I would’ve never been born anyway cool little family story that goes down the line unsure if it’s true or not just cool to tell people about it
