Don’t be fooled by all the films that portray medieval castle life as an embarrassment of riches. Living in medieval castles wasn’t just about indulging in non-stop feasts and flamboyant jousts. Castle life, even for the upper class, would not have been all that glamorous.

Check out these facts about living in a medieval castle, and decide if you would have even lasted for one day.
