London has been a major settlement for two millennia, its history going back to its founding by the Romans, who named it Londinium. It was first chartered as a city in 1190 and continued to grow into the 20th century, with the core of Greater London being established by the 16th century. In 1783, George III became king at age 59; he reigned until 1801. The longest-reigning British monarch (excluding Scottish monarchs), he oversaw much of Britain's rapid industrialisation during his reign and enacted social reforms that improved conditions for workers on urban estates and working class neighbourhoods such as Shoreditch in east London – where there are street names commemorating his family members: Adelaide Villas Road; Euston Square Gardens W1Y 4EA; Grosvenor Crescent W1U 1DZ etc.).
