Why were there so many more castles in Europe than the Americas?



  1. 0 Votes

    Castles were built all over Europe because almost every European country began as a monarchy and was ruled by a king.  Castles were built as homes for the royal family of each country.  Since the United States was founded partially to obtain freedom from the British monarchy and to create a country that is ruled by the people, there has never been a monarchy in the United States.  Since we never had a king… we never had need for castles.
