In 1907, Imperial College was established by a royal charter, merging the Royal College of Science, Royal School of Mines and City and Guilds of London Institute. In 1988, the Imperial College School of Medicine was formed by combining with St Mary's Hospital Medical School. In 2004, Queen Elizabeth II opened the Imperial College Business School.
