Belvoir Castle has a long and chequered history, the  building is the fourth to have stood on this site since Norman times. The present castle was finished in the early 19th century after previous buildings suffered damage or complete destruction during the Wars of the Roses, the Civil War and a major fire in 1816. For over a thousand years Belvoir has been the ancestral home of the Duke and Duchess of Rutland, today its the family home of the 11th Duke and Duchess and their five children.
