In 1344, he announced the establishment of a new Order of the Round Table in the castle, which, however, was soon abandoned by the king. He established the Order of the Garter, based in Windsor, with the Poor Knights of Windsor.

Edward also decided to rebuild the castle to make it a symbol of royal power and chivalry. He spent £5.000 for this purpose, and it was the largest amount spent by a medieval English monarch on a single construction operation - it was more than one and a half times the king's annual income, amounting to £30.000.
