Dick Whittington

British fictional character

Richard Whittington (c. 1350-1423), elected four times as Lord Mayor London, was the real-life inspiration for a popular British character named Dick Whittington. The original story, told at least as far back as the early 1600s, concerned a poor lad who comes to London and finds success despite many set-backs. In modern times, the character has been used in a series of motivational stories, and every child in England is still familiar with the character of Dick Whittington.
