Castle Ghosts and Hauntings

Four Royals and a Hunt

Location: Windsor (Berkshire) - Windsor Castle
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: Nineteenth and twentieth centuries
Further Comments: Henry VIII, Queen Elizabeth, Charles I & George III have all reportedly been seen here after their natural lives ended. Elizabeth frequents the library, Charles the Canon's House, while George haunts the rooms in which he was bound after being declared mad. Henry VIII can only be heard, moving slowly down the corridors, dragging his bad leg. The great park attached to the castle is home to Herne the Hunter, who together with his devil dogs, stalk the woodlands. Finally (for the time being), the park is also haunted by the ghost of a Grenadier Guard who killed himself while on duty.
