John Sheffield built the Buckingham palace in the 18. century.
But in this time the Buckingham palace was a normal cityhouse and his name was “Buckingham House”. In 1761 the “Buckingham House” changed his owner. King Georg III bought the house for his wife Charlotte. The house was only for holidays. But after some weeks the “Buckingham House” was only called the “Queen´s House”. After the changing from the owners the house was going tobe bigger and bigger. Georg IV, the son from Georg III, wanted to create a palace from a simple house.He needed more time than he thought and so his youger brother, William IV, had to finish the work. But he didn´t live there. The first Queen who lived in the palace was Queen Victoria. It was in 1837. But she thought that the palace was too small and so she also made it bigger. Now it’s a very big palace and it is called the “BUCKINGHAM PALACE”.
