Lord Mayor's Coach

The annual procession of the Lord Mayor of the City of London originated in the early 13th century. The newly elected officer travelled from the City to the Palace of Westminster, to swear fealty (allegiance) to the monarch or his justices. Until the 1420s the Lord Mayor, the Aldermen, the Recorder, Sheriffs and other officers rode on horseback, thereafter by water until 1857.
