London is the capital city of England and the setting for roughly half the action in Quicksilver and nearly all the action in The System of the World. It was subject to the Great Fire in 1666, and the Cycle describes London's emergence as the political and economic nerve center of Europe and debatably the world, displacing the prominence of France, Amsterdam, the Mughal Empire in India, and the Ottoman Empire of Turkey and north Africa.
