View of Cardiff Castle, in Cardiff, South Wales. This particular site has been fortified since the Roman invasion but the first castle to be built here was constructed in c.1091 by Robert Fitzhamon. During the 1860s Cardiff Castle was transformed into a Victorian mansion by John Crichton-Stuart, third Marquess of Bute. The architect was William Burges and Capability Brown was even hired to landscape the gardens. The South Gate which is depicted in this print was built at this time.
