    Among the oldest cities in England, Leicester holds a pride of place. It was majorly occupied by Romans. After the Norman conquest, William’s Domesday Book recorded Leicester as Ledecestre. Then, it was called a city but it lost this title after the power tussle between the church and the aristocracy in the 11th century. It wasn’t classified as a legal city until 1919 when it recovered its title.

    The city had its first Mayor in 1231 the person of Simon de Montfort. In 1645, King Charles I of England and Prince Rupert attacked Leicester to draw the new model army of the royalist headquarters of Oxford. Being a parliamentarian, Leicester was recovered by the Parliament on the 18th of June, 1645 after the battle of Naseby. In 1889, the city became a country borough and expanded throughout the 19th century.
