You can castle if you have been put in check previously in the game and removed the check without moving your king (either by blocking or capturing the opponent's piece). You cannot castle if: (a)you are currently in check; (b)you move your king through an attacked square on the board during the castle; or (c)you have moved your king or castling rook at any point in the game.
