Drogheda was originally two towns built on either side of the River Boyne. Hugh De Lacy granted a charter for the establishment of Drogheda town on the Meath side of the river in 1194, whereas Bertram de Verdun, another prominent Anglo-Norman, founded his town on the Louth side of the river. The two towns were later joined into one in 1412.
