Well the King George's Medical University, for a while known as Chhatrapati Shahuji Maharaj Medical University, is a medical school located in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, India

The Maharaja of Vijanagaram wanted to start a Medical College in Lucknow In 1870

Due to less fund the idea was dropped

In 1905 the visit of King-Emperor, George V, then Prince of Wales, inspired the idea of establishing a college to commemorate the occasion

On 22 March 1906, the Secretary to Govt. U.P. wrote to the Registrar, Allahabad University

The project was taken up by all and the Taluqdars and Zamindars of Agra and Oudh gave princely donations.

Sir Harcourt Butler himself was largely responsible for rapid maturation of the scheme

The university was Established in the year 1911
