People Born in Windsor
Berkshire in People's Lives
Jude Law: I traveled here in 2008 to film scenes of the movie The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.
Ralph Fiennes: I traveled here in 1997 to film scenes of the movie The Avengers.
Simon Cowell: I attended high school here around 1975, concentrating on sociology studies.
Victoria, Queen of England: I frequently visited this castle as a young queen, but permanently moved in here in 1862, immediately after the death of my beloved husband Albert. All of my other castles held painful memories, and I rarely left this one for the rest of my life. In mourning of Albert, I wore black for the rest of my life as well, and became more isolated. This earned me the nickname "Widow of Windsor." I abandoned my government duties, and rarely appeared in public, causing support of the monarchy to slide.
William Penn: I died here in 1718, heavily in debt.
William the Conqueror: I had the impressive, vast Windsor Castle built here in 1066, still to this day the largest castle in England and the 4th largest in the world.
