London Bridge

Though London Bridge makes many appearances in LONDON, from Roman times onwards, it is the central focus of the 'London Bridge' chapter, set in the high Middle Ages of Chaucer and the Black Prince, when, supporting two rows of gabled houses, it was at the height of its glory, and witnessed many scenes, including the Peasants Revolt.

The award for shortest reign in history goes to…Louis-Antoine Duke of Angoulême of France ! Louis XIX ruled for approximately 20 minutes – the time between when his father Charles X of France signed abdication papers in 1830 and the moment he too wielded a quill, signing away his rights to the throne.
