Since the XIth century, when the name of the lords of Rambures appears for the first time, their fortress is watching the hearth of the Vimeu, close to the border of Norman. During one thousand years, three castles were built under the order of the same family. The construction of the present castle began between the ending of the XIVth and the beginning of the XVth century, in the background of the one hundred years war. Today, it represents a rare example of the military architecture from the XVth. Indeed, even after six hundred years, it keeps his original appearance. We suppose that it was David of Rambures, a Shakespearian hero, “Great Master of the crossbows” in the French army, who constructed the castle.
