How about life in an Oriental castle? Was it much different from European ones?

Good question. The only thing I know has been gleaned from old films - so likely to be a complete fabrication!

I have seen some decent sites about Japaneese castles, but life inside? Time for some research...

One thing I found, which only makes me more curious... it was on television... the sultan had a special chamber in his castle where the male heirs to the throne were kept(brothers, uncles but I don't know about sons, I think not). It was a lot like a prison. Sometimes, when the sultan died and one of the prisoners became sultan, he was mentaly unstable because of the life in that chamber(in dark, they had only little light)

All times are PT (US)
