Description
The Coronation of King George IV, Westminster Hall in London - the Champion's Challenge. The Sovereign’s Champion would ride, fully armoured, into Westminster Hall, where he would throw down the Gauntlet at the entrance, the middle of the Hall and again at the Throne, repeating his challenge on each occasion. The purpose was to discover whether the new Monarch had any competition for his or her title to the Throne. From “Old & New London” by Walter Thornbury and Edward Walford, published in parts by Cassell & Co, London from 1873-1888. These illustrations are from parts 30-35 inclusive.
