The latest in the lecture series St George's Talks focuses on London's Lord Mayoralty. It was first mentioned in 1189 when Henry Fitzaylwyn was the holder and is not to be confused with the title Mayor of London which is only 20 years old and whose present incumbent is Sadiq Khan. The Lord Mayor presides only over that ancient part known as The City of London defined by the course of the Roman wall. It was given its charter in 1215 by King John and in 1397 Richard 'Dick' Whittington was elected for the first of his three incumbencies. He had a cat which became as famous as himself.

City of London guide Julian Romain reveals the full history of the title in his imitable and engaging style.
