Later he was to become the greatest merchant in medieval England. He supplied silks from Peking for the wedding dresses of the daughters of King Henry IV and also lent money to the king. He became Mayor of London three times, in 1397, 1407 and 1420. He is depicted with a cat. Below the portrait is an inscription in English proclaiming his many good works.
