I can't remember what my first set was. It would have been one of these -
http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?S=1480-1
http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?S=1971-1
http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?S=6076-1
I was probably only 6-7 when I got these.

My first set was King Leo, I have most of the pieces except a helm. Unfortunately, the king's torso is cracked.

My first Castle LEGO set was http://guide.lugnet.com/set/6077_1 although I had to share it with my brothers..
As for the Oldest Castle LEGO set it'd be a toss-up between the Knights procession and the Yellow Castle I bought about a decade ago, http://guide.lugnet.com/set/6075_2.
Build? I merely Acquire atm.

Welcome to the site. It's nice to find people of like mind that share the same hobby. Good to here that you still have your first set, I kept my first set, the famed "Yellow" Castle as well. I remember buying Black Monarch's Ghost when it came out.

Mine was the 70s Knight's Procession:

http://www.classic-castle.com/sets/archives/0677.html

I desperately wanted the original yellow castle but my parents wouldn't relent (if only I'd been a spoiled only child like my mate down the road who at least got the Tournament set).

Fast forward about 30 years and I now have just about all the Kingdoms sets + a few of the 2007-2009 Castle sets. I actually prefer the Castle line to Kingdoms but it was a bit hard to justify spending money on them at the time of release as we'd just had our first child and my wife wasn't working.

The first Castle sets I ever owned were the Forestmen's Hideout and the 1988 Castle Mini Figures.... Unfortunately, they got given away, along with most of the rest of my LEGOs when I went into my first Dark Ages from 1995-1997... The first Castle Sets I got when I came out of my Dark Ages were the Royal Knights 6078 Royal Drawbridge, 6036 Skeleton Surprise, and the Royal Knights Catapult that was part of the 2-pack with the Spyrius spaceship (I combined parts from the two and a Town helicopter to make a fantasy-themed Gyrocopter, sort of like in Warhammer or Warcraft II)...

The OLDEST Castle set I have is the 6057 Sea Serpent, which I won in 1997 in an online auction. :D I also managed to find a box of the 1994 "Medieval Knights" minifigure pack at a local retail store, which is the source of my lone Wolfpack Renegade. I also managed to find a couple Dragon Knights Crossbow Carts as well... I also somehow managed to acquire at least two Crusaders.... Possibly thanks to the 1998 re-release of the Treasure Cart.
