The British national daily newspaper The Times, sometimes known as The Times of London, was founded in 1785 under the title The Daily Universal Register. It was renamed The Times in 1788 and, with the nickname The Thunderer, came to be seen as the newspaper of the upper classes and the establishment. The Times remains in circulation today, having changed its format from broadsheet to tabloid in 2004.
