The famous name

September 18, 2007

According to the generally accepted version, the name of cigarettes Marlboro, which appeared at the American market in 1924, is the derivation from English word Marlborough (marl and borough).

Though by the moment of brands appearing Philip Morris has been controlled by Americans, most of experts agree in opinion that cigarettes were called in honor of the ancient British noble Marlborough family. Its founder, the first duke Marlborough, was the English general John Churchill. Among his descendants were such outstanding personalities as premier minister Winston Churchill and Lady Diana Spencer, princess of Wales.

There is another version also, according to which cigarettes got the name in honor of Marlborough lands. John Churchill became the governor and duke of these lands, for the great merits in front of the rebellious William Prince of Orange. Marlborough town still exists in Wiltshire country, which was founded at the end of XII century. The town was rather significant during Roman reign.

By the way, Marlborough city also exists in USA in Massachusetts. There is nothing outstanding in this town, which it can be famous for. Unless the fact that in 1909 locals saw UFO there.
