London i/ˈlʌndən/ is the capital city of England and the United Kingdom. It is the most populous region, urban zone and metropolitan area in the United Kingdom.
Standing on the River Thames, London has been a major settlement for two millennia, its history going back to its founding by the Romans, who named it Londinium. London's ancient core, the City of London, largely retains its 1.12-square-mile (2.9 km2) mediaeval boundaries and in 2011 had a resident population of 7,375, making it the smallest city in England. Since at least the 19th century, the term London has also referred to the metropolis developed around this core. The bulk of this conurbation forms the London region and the Greater London administrative area,[note 1] governed by the Mayor of London and the London Assembly. History Toponymy The etymology of London is uncertain. It is an ancient name, found in sources from the 2nd century.
