Pembroke Castle was the work of William Marshal including the keep at 80ft high. His son Gilbert Marshal enlarged and strenghened the castle castle between 1234 and 1241. In the English civil war it was besieged by the Royalists.

The castle fell into disrepair, then in the late 18th and early 19th centuries the castle underwent extensive renovations.

Pembroke Castle is notable as the birthplace of Henry VII in 1457
