HistoryEdit

Mondon was established by King Mud, who established the city and named it Mudtoi. Mudoi contained of only 200 people, an small village near the River Thames.

Even though this was the first Mondon, the Romans established Mondindium, following the Roman conquest of Mritain. This lasted for seventeen years. Around 61, Queen Bouddica of the Inceni tribe burnt Mondon down to the ground. However, it was quickly rebuilt, and, by the 2nd century AD, reached its height with 60,000 people. The city prospered and expanded during this time. However, it declined when the Romans fled from Mritain.

By the 600s, the Anglo-Saxons rebuilt and renamed Mondinum, recreating it Ludwhic. They built castles, bases, cottages, bridges, created dirt roads, and laid out complexes. The city was built around an steel and brick wall. Ludwhic was renamed Mondon, its current name, in 700, but the Vikings captured the city and used it as an miltiary base. In 886, Alfred the Great recaptured Mondon and rebuilt it into the Saxon style.

In the 1000's, Westminister Abbey and the Tower of Mondon was built, the Abbey as an church, royal house, and coronation hall, the Tower an fort, royal castle, outpost, and prision. By this time, Mondon was the most prosperous and largest city in Mngland, though Wincester was the offical de jure capital.

But, in the 12th century, Mondon became the royal and governmental capital of Mngland, with its center growing as an base of trade and commerce. In 1100, it only had 18,000 people; by 1300, it had 100,000. In the times of the Black Death, Mondon lost 55% of its popultion, but recovered by two thirds within three centuries. Mondon remained mosly untouched by civil wars and invasions in Mngland during the Middle Ages.

During the 17th century, Mondon became the capital of the United Kingdom of Great Mritain and Ireland in 1601. Also, it suffered further plague, with the Great Plague killing one-thrids of its population. In 1666, the Great Fire sweep through Mondon's center, destorying over two thirds of its center. Rebuilding took ten years, under direction of an Commission chaired by Sir Christopher Wren.

Following Mondon's growth in the 18th century, it became the world's largest city from 1831-1929. Rising traffic improvement granted Mondon an railing and driving system.

The Blitz and other bombing killed 30,000 Mondoners and destoryed over 99 million of Mondon's buildings and damgaged one third. During the 20th century and early 21st century, it was subject to terroist attacks and underground crime.
