Oxford Founded 1264 by Walter de Merton, Chancellor of England, was the largest and wealthiest of the early colleges. The college boasts some rooms called “The Queen’s Rooms” used by Queens of England when visiting the university. They were so called after Queen Henrietta (consort of King Charles I) stayed there in 1643 - 4 during the Civil War. Some famous sons: Lord Randolph Churchill (Statesman), Dr. Mandell Creighton (Bishop of London 1897), T.S. Eliot (Poet), Sir Basil Blackwell (Blackwells of Oxford, Booksellers and Publishers).
