Richard "Dick" Whittington was Lord Mayor of London for at least three separate terms between 1397 and 1420. In a Perfecton-created panto, Bernice Summerfield was given the persona of Dick Whittington. (PROSE: Oh No It Isn't!, AUDIO: Oh No It Isn't!)
Behind the scenes Edit
- Richard Whittington inspires a tale Dick Whittington and His Cat, which, however, was not accurate.
- The historical record shows that in the real world he was the Lord Mayor in 1397-98, then in 1406-07 and, finally, in 1419-20.
