History

Dublin was founded as the Viking settlement of Eblana sometime during the 2nd century. Viking rule of Dublin ended in the 12th century when control of the city was passed to the Normans. After the taking of Dublin by Ango-Normans, the city became the center of English power throughout Ireland. The city was hit by the notorious Black Death in the 14th century and the Trinity College of Dublin was opened in the 16th century by Queen Elizabeth the First. During the 18th century, many notable architectural landmarks were constructed in the city and the city continued to grow after the end of British rule over Ireland.
