National Westminster Bank History
National Westminster Bank can trace its history back to 1650. The actual name National Westminster Bank (nowadays referred to as Nat West) came about through the mergers of two banks in 1968. These two were the Westminster Bank and National Provincial Bank.
In 1999 Nat West announced that it was merging with Legal and General but then The Royal Bank of Scotland launched a hostile take over and eventually succeeded in acquiring National Westminster Bank for 21 billion pounds in the UK's largest takeover in history at the time. The combined banks at the time became the 2nd largest in Europe.
