The city and unitary authority of Leicester is the most populated municipality in the East Midlands. Leicester ranks 11th as the most densely settled English urban area and the 13th most heavily populated metropolitan region in the UK. The Lei in Leicester forms from the Anglo-Saxon name Ligora which is a Brittonic name for a river. The second element, cester, traces back to the Latin word castrum which is reflected in the Welsh word cair and the Anglo-Saxon word ceastre. Leicester is regarded as one of the earliest cities in England and played a prominent role during the Roman Conquest of Britain as the Roman province of Ratae Corieltauvorum.
