When Simon de Montfort became Lord of Leicester in , he gave the city a grant to expel the Jewish population  "in my time or in the time of any of my heirs to the end of the world".
He justified his action as being "for the good of my soul, and for the souls of my ancestors and successors". De Montfort however issued a second edict for the expulsion of Leicester's Jews in , after Grosseteste's death.
During the C14th the earls of Leicester and Lancaster enhanced the prestige of the town. Henry, 3rd Earl of Lancaster and of Leicester founded a hospital for the poor and infirm in the area to the south of the castle now known as The Newarke the "new work".
Henry's son, the great Henry of Grosmont , 4th Earl of Lancaster and of Leicester, who was made first Duke of Lancaster, enlarged and enhanced his father's foundation, and built the collegiate Church of the Annunciation of Our Lady of The Newarke.
It became an important pilgrimage site because it housed a thorn said to be from the Crown of Thorns, given to the Duke by the King of France.
The church described by Leland in the C16th as "not large but exceeding fair" also became, effectively, a Lancastrian mausoleum. The Church of the Annunciation was the burial place of Duke Henry, who had earlier had his father re-interred here.
John of Gaunt died at Leicester Castle in When his son became king, the Earldom of Leicester and the Duchy of Lancaster became royal titles and the latter remains so.
The site of that church is now covered by more modern buildings and a car park. There was a legend his corpse had been cast into the river , while some historians  argued his tomb and remains were destroyed during the dissolution of the monasteries under Henry VIII.
However, in September , an archaeological investigation of the car park revealed a skeleton  which DNA testing helped verify to be related to two descendants of Richard III's sister.
On his way south to face dubious justice at the Tower of London , he fell ill. The group escorting him was concerned enough to stop at Leicester to rest at Leicester Abbey.
There, Wolsey's condition quickly worsened. The Corporation of Leicester opposed the efforts of Charles I of England to disafforest the nearby Leicester Forest , believing them to be likely to throw many of its residents into poverty and need of relief.
Sir Miles Fleetwood was sent to commission the disafforestation and division of lands being used in common. Petitions challenging the enclosures were presented by the Corporation of Leicester and borough residents to the King and Privy Council.
They were unsuccessful so petitioned the House of Lords in June who however supported Fleetwood but asked for proceedings made by the Crown against the rioters to be dropped.
Compensation made to the legal residents of the forest was reasonably generous by comparison with other forests. Leicester was a Parliamentarian colloquially called Roundhead stronghold during the English Civil War.
Royalist guns were set up on Raw Dykes and, after an unsatisfactory response to a demand for surrender, the assault began at 3pm on 30 May by a Royalist battery opposite the Newarke.
The town - which only had approximately 2, defenders opposed to the Royalist Army of approximately 10, combatants - was sacked on 31 May , and hundreds of people were killed by Rupert's cavalry.
One witness said, "they fired upon our men out of their windows, from the tops of houses, and threw tiles upon their heads. Finding one house better manned than ordinary, and many shots fired at us out of the windows, I caused my men to attack it, and resolved to make them an example for the rest; which they did.
Breaking open the doors, they killed all they found there without distinction". It was reported that houses had been destroyed and that wagons of plunder were sent to the Royalist stronghold of Newark.
The first railway station in Leicester opened in , in the form of The Leicester and Swannington Railway which provided a supply of coal to the town from nearby collieries.
These developments encouraged and accompanied a process of industrialisation which intensified throughout the reign of Queen Victoria.
Factories began to appear, particularly along the canal and river, and districts such as Frog Island and Woodgate were the locations of numerous large mills.
Between and , Leicester's population increased from 68, to , [ citation needed ] and the proportion employed in trade, commerce, building, and the city's new factories and workshops rose steadily.
Hosiery, textiles, and footwear became the major industrial employers: manufacturers such as N. The politics of Victorian Leicester were lively and very often bitter.
Years of consistent economic growth meant living standards generally increased, but Leicester was a stronghold of Radicalism.
Thomas Cooper , the Chartist , kept a shop in Church Gate. There were serious Chartist riots in the town in and again six years later.
It was not until that Leicester Secular Hall was opened. The second half of the 19th century also witnessed the creation of many other institutions, including the town council, the Royal Infirmary, and the Leicester Constabulary.
It also benefited from general acceptance and the Public Health Acts [ citation needed ] that municipal organisations had a responsibility to provide for the town's water supply, drainage, and sanitation.
In , backed with a guarantee of dividends by the Corporation of Leicester the Leicester Waterworks Company built a reservoir at Thornton for the supply of water to the town.
This guarantee was made possible by the Public Health Act and an amending local Act of Parliament of In another amending Act enabled the Corporation of Leicester to take shares in the company to enable another reservoir at Cropston, completed in The Corporation of Leicester was later able to buy the waterworks and build another reservoir at Swithland, completed in the s.
Leicester became a county borough in , although it was abolished with the rest in as part of the Local Government Act.
The city regained its unitary status apart from Leicestershire in The borough had been expanding throughout the 19th century, but grew most notably when it annexed Belgrave , Aylestone , North Evington , Knighton , and Stoneygate in In , the Great Central Railway provided another link to London, but the rapid population growth of the previous decades had already begun to slow by the time of Queen Victoria's death in World War I and the subsequent epidemics had further impacts.
Nonetheless, Leicester was finally recognised as a legal city once more in in recognition of its contribution to the British war effort.
Recruitment to the armed forces was lower in Leicester than in other English cities, partly because of the low level of unemployment and the need for many of its industries, such as clothing and footwear manufacturing, to supply the army.
As the war progressed, many of Leicester's factories were given over to arms production; Leicester produced the first batch of Howitzer shells by a British company which was not making ammunition before the war.
After the war, the city received a royal visit; the king and queen received a march-past in Victoria Park of thousands of serving and demobilised soldiers.
Following the end of the war, a memorial arch—the Arch of Remembrance —was built in Victoria Park and unveiled in A set of gates and lodges, again by Lutyens, were added in the s, leading to the memorial from the University Road and London Road entrances to Victoria Park.
In , Leicester again became a cathedral city on the consecration of St Martin's Church as the cathedral. A second major extension to the boundaries following the changes in took place in , with the annexation of the remainder of Evington , Humberstone , Beaumont Leys , and part of Braunstone.
The boundary has remained unchanged since that time. Leicester's diversified economic base and lack of dependence on primary industries meant it was much better placed than many other cities to weather the tariff wars of the s and Great Depression of the s.
The Bureau of Statistics of the newly formed League of Nations identified Leicester in as the 2nd-richest city in Europe  and it became an attractive destination for refugees fleeing persecution and political turmoil in continental Europe.
Firms such as Corah and Liberty Shoes used their reputation for producing high-quality products to expand their businesses. These years witnessed the growth in the city of trade unionism and particularly the co-operative movement.
The Co-op became an important employer and landowner; when Leicester played host to the Jarrow March on its way to London in , the Co-op provided the marchers with a change of boots.
In , Leicester was selected as the base for Squadron 1F, the first A. The years after World War II , particularly from the s onwards, brought many social and economic challenges.
Mass housebuilding continued across Leicester for some 30 years after Existing housing estates such as Braunstone were expanded, while several completely new estates — of both private and council tenure — were built.
Many former factories, including some on Frog Island and at Donisthorpe Mill , have been badly damaged by fire. Rail and barge were finally eclipsed by automotive transport in the s and s: the Great Central and the Leicester and Swannington both closed and the northward extension of the M1 motorway linked Leicester into England's growing motorway network.
With the loss of much of the city's industry during the s and s, some of the old industrial jobs were replaced by new jobs in the service sector, particularly in retail.
The opening of the Haymarket Shopping Centre in was followed by a number of new shopping centres in the city, including St Martin's Shopping Centre in and the Shire Shopping Centre in Many Polish servicemen were prevented from returning to their homeland after the war by the communist regime,  and they established a small community in Leicester.
Economic migrants from the Irish Republic continued to arrive throughout the post war period. Immigrants from the Indian sub-continent began to arrive in the s, their numbers boosted by Asians arriving from Kenya and Uganda in the early s.
In , Idi Amin announced that the entire Asian community in Uganda had 90 days to leave the country. Forty years later, Leicester's mayor Sir Peter Soulsby expressed his regret for the behaviour of the council at the time.
In the s, a group of Dutch citizens of Somali origin settled in the city. Since the enlargement of the European Union a significant number of East European migrants have settled in the city.
However, Professor Ludi Simpson at the University of Manchester School of Social Sciences said in September that the CRE had "made unsubstantiated claims and ignored government statistics" and that Leicester's immigrant and minority communities disperse to other places.
The Leicester Multicultural Advisory Group  is a forum, set up in by the editor of the Leicester Mercury , to co-ordinate community relations with members representing the council, police, schools, community and faith groups, and the media.
The Coronavirus pandemic has brought many social and economic challenges across the country and across the world. Leicester has been particularly badly affected in the United Kingdom from July during the imposition of the first local lockdown which saw all non-essential retail closed again and businesses such as public houses, restaurants and hairdressers unable to reopen.
Businesses such as these in areas such as Glenfield and that part of Braunstone Town which outside of the formal City Council area have since been allowed to reopen following a more tightly defined lockdown area from 18 July The LUA contains the unitary authority area and several towns, villages and suburbs outside the city's administrative boundaries.
Leicester experiences a maritime climate with mild to warm summers and cool winters, rain spread throughout the year, and low sunshine levels.
The nearest official Weather Station was Newtown Linford, about 5 miles 8. However, observations stopped there in The highest temperature recorded at Newtown Linford was Rainfall averages On 5 May , the directly elected Mayor of Leicester role came into effect after the inaugural election.
This post exists in addition to that of Lord Mayor, which these days is a ceremonial post. On 1 April , Leicester City Council became a unitary authority.
Previously, local government had been a two-tier system: the city and county councils were responsible for different aspects of local-government services.
That system is still in place in the rest of Leicestershire. Leicestershire County Council retained its headquarters at County Hall in Glenfield , just outside the city boundary but within the urban area.
The administrative offices of Leicester City Council are in the centre of the city at Charles Street, having moved from Welford Place.
The buildings at Welford Place have been demolished and the site is to be developed into a complex of offices and plazas. Some services particularly the police and the ambulance service still cover the whole of the city and county, but for the most part the councils are independent.
The minority Labour group ran the city until May , under Ross Willmott, when the Liberal Democrats and Conservatives formed a new coalition, again under the leadership of Roger Blackmore.
In the local government elections of 3 May , Leicester's Labour Party once again took control of the council in what can be described as a landslide victory.
Significantly however, the Green Party gained its first councillors in the Castle Ward, after losing on the drawing of lots in , though one of these subsequently resigned and the seat was lost to Labour in a by-election on 10 September The Liberal Democrat Party was the major loser, dropping from 25 councillors in to only 6 in This was in part due to the local party splitting, with a number of councillors standing for the Liberal Party UK, In the local government elections of 5 May and those of May , Labour won 52 of the city's 54 seats, with the Conservatives and Liberal Democrats winning one seat each.
The Corporation of Leicester's coat of arms was first granted to the city at the Heraldic Visitation of , and is based on the arms of the first Earl of Leicester , Robert Beaumont.
The charge is a cinquefoil ermine, on a red field, and this emblem is used by the city council. After Leicester became a city again in , the city council applied to add to the arms.
Permission for this was granted in , when the supporting lions, from the Lancastrian Earls of Leicester, were added. The motto "Semper Eadem" was the motto of Queen Elizabeth I , who granted a royal charter to the city.
It means "always the same" but with positive overtones meaning unchanging, reliable or dependable, and united.
The crest on top of the arms is a white or silver legless wyvern with red and white wounds showing, on a wreath of red and white. The legless wyvern distinguishes it as a Leicester wyvern as opposed to other wyverns.
The supporting lions are wearing coronets in the form of collars, with the white cinquefoil hanging from them. In the census, the population of the Leicester unitary authority area was ,, an increase of The wider Leicester Urban Area ,  showed an estimated population of , The population of the Leicester unitary authority area is marginally higher than that of Nottingham, while Nottingham has a higher urban area population compared to Leicester.
Eurostat 's Larger Urban Zone lists the population of the Leicester LUZ at , below that of Nottingham;  metropolitan and city region populations tend to be similar.
According to the census Leicester had the largest proportion of people aged and-under in the East Midlands at 27 per cent. Coventry, to the south west, has a population of , est.
The Eurostat regional yearbook classifies Leicester as one of country's eleven 'Greater Cities', together with Birmingham and Nottingham in the Midlands.
