Liddy, C. (2002) 'The rhetoric of the royal chamber in late medieval London, York and Coventry.', Urban history., 29 (3). pp. 323-349.
In the late medieval period several English cities claimed the distinction of being a royal chamber: London and York referred to themselves as the 'king's chamber', whilst Coventry called itself the 'prince's chamber'.
