Chaucer

The famous author of THE CANTERBURY TALES makes numerous appearances as a minor character in the 'London Bridge' chapter of LONDON. Besides his literary activities, he was a customs official, a Justice of the Peace, and also had a family connection to the king's uncle, John of Gaunt. His role closely follows what details we know of his life.
