King's College London was founded by King George IV and Arthur Wellesley, the first Duke of Wellington. It was a nonreligious alternative to the universities of Cambridge and Oxford, which mainly educated the sons of prominent Anglicans. KCL grew from several mergers throughout the 20th century. In 1985 it merged with Chelsea College of Science and Technology and Queen Elizabeth College. Several more mergers followed—one with Chelsea College of Science and Technology and Queen Elizabeth College in 1985, another with the Florence Nightingale School of Nursing and Midwifery, and with Guy’s and St. Thomas hospital’s United Medical and Dental Schools back in 1998.
KCL’s notable alumni include the founder of modern nursing, Florence Nightingale; anti-apartheid and human rights activist, Desmond Tutu; and leading theoretical physicist, Professor Peter Higgs. The university has produced 12 Nobel laureates such as Sir Frederick Gowland Hopkins for his research on beriberi and vitamins in 1929; Sir Charles Scott Sherrington for his research on the nervous system in 1932; and Maurice Wilkins for his discovery of the structure of DNA in 1962.
