Eton College is a 13–18 independent boarding school for boys near Windsor in Berkshire, England. It was founded in 1440 by King Henry VI as "Kynge's College of Our Ladye of Eton besyde Windesore", as a sister institution to King's College, Cambridge. Eton's history and influence have made it one of the most prestigious schools in the world.
Mentioned briefly in Ian Fleming's 1964 James Bond novel, You Only Live Twice, the location was prominently featured in the Young Bond series of spin-off James Bond novels beginning with 2005's SilverFin.
