The day has come! I have finally written a blog post about my favourite colleges in Cambridge. This article is not about academic specialities or prestige of the colleges. If you are planning on attending the University of Cambridge and are looking for advice which college to choose, this blog post will not help you, sorry!
Name: Christ‘s College
Founded: 1505 by Lady Margaret Beaufort
Christ’s College was first established as God’s House in 1437 by William Byngham, a London parish priest, and re-founded in 1505 by Lady Margaret. Her only child Henry VII, whom she had at the age of 14 (!), was King of England from 1485 to 1509. She was the richest woman in English Medieval history and used her wealth to promote education and religion.
