History of London

London was actually established by the Romans, who originally named it Londonium in the 4th  century CE. At the time, London had around 50 thousand inhabitants, owing its dense population numbers to the proximity and importance of its nearby pier. During the 5th century, many Anglo-Saxon invasions took place with the goal of taking the region away from Roman control. In the 7th century, the city became the capital of the Kingdom of Essex. In the 9th century, England fell victim to numerous invasions by the Vikings, and London was no exception. The city and the whole country saw many Danish immigrants come at the time, who contributed a lot to the development of trade in the region. Many merchants and artificers opened stores in London, making it the urban center of England. The city’s potential drew attention of Danish King Alfred The Great, who officially conquered London in 886. In 1067, the newly-crowned King of England, Willian of Normandy, after conquering England for Normandy, established law in England, including privileges and rules that were officially accepted in the city, and it was at this time that the London Tower was constructed.
