Balliol College, Oxford
Balliol College (/ˈbliəl/)[4] is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford in England. One of Oxford's oldest colleges,[5] it was founded around 1263 by John I de Balliol, a rich landowner from Barnard Castle in County Durham, who provided the foundation and endowment for the college.[6] When de Balliol died in 1269 his widow, Dervorguilla, a woman whose wealth far exceeded that of her husband, continued his work in setting up the college, providing a further endowment, and writing the statutes. She is considered a co‑founder of the college.[7]
