London is the United Kingdom's capital. 'The Square Mile' included 109 parishes. Today, Greater London has expanded into [[Middlesex, England Genealogy|Middlesex]], [[Surrey, England Genealogy|Surrey]], [[Kent, England Genealogy|Kent]], and [[Essex, England Genealogy|Essex]]. London was initially established by the Romans around AD 43. After the Romans left Britain in 410, the city was controlled by the Vikings, Danish, and English at various times during the next few centuries. Finally, the control of England was firmly established after the Norman Conquest of 1066, led by William the Conqueror. After the Norman Conquest, London's population and economic power increased, despite the Black Death and the Great Fire, becoming a global political, financial, and trading capital. London remains one of the major economic and political centers of the world.

History Information

London is the United Kingdom's capital. 'The Square Mile' included 109 parishes. Today, Greater London has expanded into Middlesex, Surrey, Kent, and Essex. London was initially established by the Romans around AD 43. After the Romans left Britain in 410, the city was controlled by the Vikings, Danish, and English at various times during the next few centuries. Finally, the control of England was firmly established after the Norman Conquest of 1066, led by William the Conqueror. After the Norman Conquest, London's population and economic power increased, despite the Black Death and the Great Fire, becoming a global political, financial, and trading capital. London remains one of the major economic and political centers of the world.
