The palace and its London location thus became very important to the operation of the British government; for example, in 1295, Edward I summoned what came to be called the "Model Parliament," a legislative body with more powers than previously permitted by the monarch. By the time of King Edward III, circa 1327, London was generally regarded as the capital city.
