Sigmaringen, Germany. First mentioned in 1077 following an unsuccessful siege during the "Great Saxon Revolt", Sigmaringen was the seat of government for the Princes of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen. Originally a fortress, it was converted into more of a palace. I'll post more in the comments.

Monteriggioni, Italy. This famous fortified town (referenced in Dante's "Divine Comedy") was built by the Sienese in 1213 as a front line defense in their wars against Florence. It withstood many attacks from the Fiorentini and the forces of the Bishop of Volterra. I'll post more in the comments.

Dunster, England. Positioned on a steep, 200-foot hill, Dunster has been fortified since the late Anglo-Saxon period. Turned into a motte and bailey castle soon after the Norman Conquest, the castle survived a siege during the early years of "The Anarchy". I'll post more in the comments.
