Trinity College, Cambridge
Trinity College was established in 1546 by Henry VIII. It was created by the merger of several older colleges, including Michaelhouse (1324) and King's Hall, the latter dating from 1337 in the reign of Edward III to whom the Great Gate (1535) is dedicated. Beyond King Edward's Gate (1418), parts of the old King's Hall buildings are still identifiable.
Trinity College Statues
Thomas Nevile, Master of Trinity from 1593 to 1615, removed the statue of Edward III from its position on the street side of the Great Gate and replaced it with one of Henry VIII as the college's founder and benefactor. Edward's statue now stands on the clock tower near the chapel. On the inner side of the Great Gate there are statues of James I, his wife Anne of Denmark, and their son, the young Prince Charles, while a statue of Elizabeth I stands above the Queen's Gate on the south side of the Court.
