It is often said that the origin of the name comes from the marriage of King Edward I of England and Eleanor of Castile in 1254. As the Londoners would have had some difficulty in pronouncing the word "Infanta de Castille" to refer to their Queen, where the deformation that would have followed in "Elephant and Castle." However, it is thought the name , Elefant and Castle, might also have come from a pub bearing the same name in the 17th century.
