    6 Quirky Facts About Marlborough

    1. Minted
      Marlborough (recorded in the Domesday Book as ‘Merleberge’) was the site of a royal mint and King John got married at Marlborough Castle in August 1189. However, when he was crowned king 10 years later, he didn’t have his wife Isabel (to whom he was related) declared queen and shortly after had his marriage ‘dissolved’. He was the first king to do so, something Henry the VIII would later make a habit of.
    2. Royal Connections
      100 years before King John’s wedding, William the Conqueror built the first recognisable castle. Henry I and Henry II both spent time there, King John made it the site of his treasury and Henry III held parliament in the town. in 1267 that Parliament created the Statute of Marlborough that included the law “That no-one shall seize his neighbour’s goods for alleged wrong without permission of the Court.” This law has never been repealed and is the basis of much English law to this day.
    3. Hard Castle
      The castle once again came to prominence during the English Civil war when the rich Seymour family who owned the castle (Jane Seymour, one of Henry VIII’s wives came from this line), declared for King Charles. The town took up arms for parliament. Battle was inevitable as Charles considered the town vitally important and he sent a force to crush the rebels and protect the Seymour family, who just happened to be putting money into his coffers.
    4. Merlin’s Mound
      In the grounds of Marlborough College sits a small hill, known as Merlin’s Mound it has been linked to the legend of Merlin and King Arthur. Carbon dating has found it is a prehistoric tumulus and shows that the earliest inhabitation of Marlborough dates back to 2400BC. The town’s motto adds further flames to the Merlin myth, Ubi nunc sapientis ossa Merlini = Where now are the bones of wise Merlin.
    5. Old Town
      The town really does have a rich history and the area has been the site of Neolithic, Iron Age and Bronze Age forts, Roman settlements, Saxon villages and Viking battlefields. All that before becoming the seat of parliament and playground for kings and their hunting parties.
    6. Marlborough Alumni
      Marlborough College has a rather impressive list of ex-pupils including; John Betjemen (poet), Siegfried Sassoon (poet), Nick Drake (singer), Chris de Burgh (singer), Jack Whitehall (comedian), Simon Fanshawe OBE (writer), James Mates (TV news presenter), Simon Woodruff (Yo Sushi), Ernest Debenham (Debenhams stores), Princess Eugenie (royal family), Duchess of Cambridge (royal family). The school has also produced 13 recipients of the Victoria cross.
