King's College London (informally King's or KCL; formerly styled King's College, London) is a public research university located in London, United Kingdom, and a constituent college of the federal University of London. King's was founded in 1829 by King George IV and the Duke of Wellington and received its royal charter in the same year. On this basis, King's claims to be the fourth oldest university in England, although student groups have laid claims to it being the third-oldest university. King's became one of the two founding colleges of the University of London in 1836.
