London’s Medieval Trading Companies

During the middle ages, ambitious people from around the civilized European world gravitated toward the wharfs of the River Thames. After gathering in the streets to discuss their latest profits and losses they began creating organizations … guilds. The new guilds had to fight mightily to gain prosperity because the burghers in power were often relatives of industrial tycoons. But as the years went by the guilds grew stronger economically and politically, thus many members of the guilds became the new wealthy class. By the 1500s, London’s guilds became highly prosperous and are today still functioning but under different company names.
