The Savoy Palace was considered the grandest nobleman’s townhouse of medieval London, being the residence of John of Gaunt until it was destroyed in the Peasants’ Revolt of 1381. It lay between the Strand and the River Thames – the present Savoy Theatre and Savoy Hotel were named in its memory. In its locality the rule of law was different from the rest of London, which special jurisdiction was known as the Liberties of the Savoy.
