Re: Hwaseong Fortress
Very few places in the English-speaking world are called 'Name Fortress'. Older strongly-fortified buildings constructed by royalty or nobles are usually called 'Name Castle'; more recently-built army establishments are often called 'Fort Name'. The English translations of the names of castles, palaces, stately homes, forts, fortresses, etc in other countries may be an attempt to give the closest translation of the original name.

Why doesn't "king" have any article like "a" or "the"? Is it just a customary usage?gp36)Have you ever been to Hwaseong Fortress
