London is the capital city of England and the United Kingdom.

HistoryEdit

London was founded by Brutus of Troy as Troy-Novatum ("New Troy") in the 11th century BCE. By the Roman Era, the city was known as Londinium.

In July 1898, London's Limehouse area became the site of an aerial battle between Professor James Moriarty and The Doctor. A month later, South London was devastated in the Martian invasion.

In April 1910, the pirates of the Black Nautilus raided the London docks.

London was bombed during the Second World War.

Shortly after the Second World War, London was taken over by the Ingsoc Regime, led by the tyrannical Big Brother. Following the latter's assassination, the city went to work dismantling the monuments of the former Ingsoc government.

By 1969, London was in the grip of the psychedelic Summer of Love, with bands such as the Rutles and the Purple Orchestra making names for themselves in the city.

By 2009, London, reeling from the effects of the economic downturn, has changed into a dystopia--homelessness is rife, and large sections of the city have fallen into disrepair. It is also the site of the battle with the Antichrist.
