The Obelisk at Castle Howard
The Obelisk at Castle Howard
The Obelisk, raised in 1714-15, carries two sets of inscriptions. The first, in Latin, commemorates the victories of the 1st Duke of Marlborough. The second, on the west side is in English, and was composed in 1731, when much of the building and landscaping had been completed, it was written with posterity in mind, and is the clearest statement possible of the 3rd Earl's aspirations for his family.
