Greenwich is famous for its role in the development of the maritime industry and for being the place where the Greenwich Meridian (0 degrees longitude) and Greenwich Mean Time got their names. From the 15th century onward, the town served as the location of a royal residence known as the Palace of Placentia. Additionally, the town was the birthplace of several Tudors, including Henry VIII and Elizabeth I.
