Become a castle expert! Take a stroll through a castle with its lord and lady and meet the jester, steward, lady-in-waiting, and their colorful companions that live there. Serve as a page, become a squire, and be dubbed as a knight. Slash through facts and myths of dashing white knights, fire-breathing dragons, princesses locked in towers, and cauldrons filled with bubling oil. Then test your noble intelligence to see what you learned.
