Timeline for 1400
15th century

• 1397 • 1399

In 1400, the First Doctor, Ian Chesterton, Barbara Wright and Vicki Pallister visited England. On that occasion, they met Queen Isabella and the author Geoffrey Chaucer and fought the Archbishop of Canterbury Thomas Arundel.

Having been denied food on Arundel's orders, King Richard II of England starved to death in Pomfret Castle. His widow Queen Isabella returned to her native France.

Shortly afterwards, Chaucer went into hiding in Wales under an assumed name. (AUDIO: The Doctor's Tale)
