Title     Nonesuch
History     Nonesuch was built in 1538 by Henry VIII over the demolished property
  of the village of Cuddington, near Epsom Wells in Sussex, to be the
  most ostentatious hunting lodge ever made. At the very end of her
  life, Elizabeth I visited Nonesuch, as a guest of Lord Lumley,
  son-in-law of the Earl of Arundel, and it was reported that "there is
  much dancing of country dances in the privy chamber at Nonesuch, before
  the Queen's majesty, who is exceedingly pleased therewith".
