The Queen’s College Oxford was founded in 1341 ‘under the name of the Hall of the Queen’s scholars of Oxford’ by the endowment of Robert de Eglesfield. The queen in question was Queen Philippa of Hainault, consort of King Edward III of England: Robert Eglesfield, who became Provost of the college, was her chaplain.
