Castles reverting to the Crown?

And for the ones I can't even figure out *how* to look up...

If an Earl's Widow dies without a will and with no living relatives to claim the estate, would the Castle revert to the Crown for ownership? This is PRE 1500 (in the very early 1100's or so).

Edit: This is also NORSE, not English. So the laws are a little different (and I've not been able to find good materials on "different in what way").

Thanks again!
