The Royal Hospital for Seamen (later known as the Greenwich Hospital) was founded by Royal Charter on 25 October 1694. William III granted the charter to honour his late wife Queen Mary’s wishes following her death that year. The Hospital was designed by Christopher Wren. Nicholas Hawksmoor was the Site Architect on the project. The Hospital was intended as the naval counterpart of the Royal Chelsea Hospital, which was founded for Army pensioners.
