NOMINATION 451 OF 1169

Your comments


If you are genuinely interested in The King's College of Our Lady of Eton Beside Windsor, why not go and visit her? Sometimes things are not quite what the media would like you to think. The famous school was founded by Henry VI all the way back in 1440 A.D. as a christian community which it still is now thank God. She has a long and fascinating history and is far more complicated and extraordinary than her critics would have you believe. Put your predujices aside and observe one of the last surviving remnants of a once-great country.

Mention Eton and everyone in country instantly thinks of the school. Chosen by the royals for education, this has to be one of the well known icons of England.
