Louis XII., when she was a seven-ycar-ohl
girl. It was a vcnerabU' nnd
imposing structure, which was built
in the reign of Edward III. by n Nor
man baron. William de Hever, and em
battled ns to-day with moat, portcullis,
C'lawbridge nnd round towers, after
the fashion of a feudal fortress. The
banquet hall, which in recent yrnrs
Las been used as a kitchen, was huge,
for it had been built for baronial fes
tivities, before the father and mother
of Anne made it their homo, with a less
l'rco purse for such extravagances.
The windows of the long winding gal
leries bore the shields of many gen
