Probably the best known of London’s Lord Mayors was Dick Whittington.

Contrary to popular belief, he was not three times Lord Mayor, but four.
He was elected to serve three times.
1397

Before his first elected term the serving Mayor Adam Bamme died in office in 1396.

The King then appointed Whittington to take his place, so in effect he was four times Mayor.
