King Henry VIII did not build castles (despite many of them having that incorrect title today) - he built artillery forts. These were a stage beyond castles, with artillery guns as the main weapon of defence backed up by early firearms. These forts were built in layers of squat, curved walls, each layer smaller than the one below (like a wedding cake), with gun ports facing in every direction.
