Originally built by Llewelyn the Great (Llywelyn ap Iorwerth) sometime between c.1210 and 1240 ( rather confusingly it is sometimes said that Llywelyn was born in Dolwyddelan Castle but this must refer to the now vanished Castle that was on the top of a rocky knoll on the valley floor below the present Castle). The Dolwyddelan Castle from the Eastpresent Castle was built to guard the road into the core of his kingdom to watch over his vital upland cattle-pastures. Defended by rock-cut ditches and a steep drop, the Castle is dominated by a rectangular keep-tower, later heightened to three stories.
