Carisbrooke Castle is a historic motte-and-bailey castle located in the village of Carisbrooke (near Newport), Isle of Wight, England. The keep was added to the castle in the reign of Henry I, and it was surrounded by additional fortifications in the reign of Elizabeth I, when the Spanish Armada was expected in 1583. Substantial improvements to the defence were made in 1600. Charles I was imprisoned here for fourteen months before his execution in 1649, the illustration show the window from which he attempted to escape.
