Since its 6th-century inception as East Saxon King Sebert's church, Westminster Abbey has been associated with the British Crown. The first Abbey was built by Edward the Confessor in 1065. During the early 13th-century, under Henry III, the Abbey was created in the styles of French and Gothic cathedrals.
All English monarchs since William the Conqueror have been crowned at the coronation chair. Many of the deceased monarchs are interred within the Abbey's walls. Famous literary figures such as Chaucer, Dickens, and Lewis Carroll are also buried here. Westminster Abbey is located in London.
