The capital city of Great Britain.

It was allegedly founded by Brutus, who named the city Troia Nova, which means ‘New Troy’. The city subsequently became the capital of Lludd, the sixty-eighth ruler after Brutus, who fortified the walls, at which time it was known as Caer Lludd, ‘Lludd’s Fort’, Caer Lundein. Some time later the ‘Caer’ was dropped, and the city simply became known as Lundein, of which the modern name is a simple derivation.

This must have been a good place to buy armor: Cligés sent his squires here from Wallingford to buy three full suits of it – one black – one crimson, and one green – for him to wear in the Oxford tournament. They accomplished this within a fortnight.
