The Kingric of England, also known more formally as the Kingric and Caserric of England, sometimes as the English Riche, or gemeanly as England, is a land that lies in the northwest coast of Europa. Aside from its holdings in Europa, England holds a manifoldness of lands elsewhere; in America, Asia, Africa, and Oceania. England, while its heartland being an ieland, shares marks with many states across the world. Around 80 million folks live within England, the twithe micklest in the EU and the first in the Caserly Gemeanwealth.
England is a parliamentarish democracy under a constitutional monarchy, with an gewaled legislature called the Lawthing. Its queen is Elisabeth II of the House of Hannover, who has led England since 1952; she is also Queen of Victorialand, Queensland, New Zealand, and Southafrica. Its Prime Minister is James Frithric Osbourne, Heretog of Northumberland, of the Foroned Conservative Party (FCP), who was gewaled in 2017. Unlike other constitutional monarchies, such as those of Belgy and Danemark, the queen is not fully withheld political grip over the land, though it is greatly bounded.
Its headstead, London, is the twithe micklest stead in Europa by befolking, with more than 10 million folks living in it, after the Russish stead of Sanct Petersburgh. It is one of the Worldsteads with its great wealth and industry; London is also well known for its tourism. Other mickle steads in the Kingric are Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, and Glasgow.
The English Riche was once micklest riche of all time. Though its might has faltered after the end of the Twithe Worldcrig and the latter half of the 20th yearhundred, freeing many of its colonies in Africa and Asia, it still remains a sare strong nation. The bequest of its culture is seen all over the world, besunderly its former colonies. The English speech is the de facto Lingua Franca of Earth, used worldwide in business, trade, and diplomacy.
It is in a seat of strength in the world's politics, being one of its Great Mightes. Its werthship is among the micklest in the world, having the world's fourth highest Gross Inlandsproduct after the Foroned States, Japan, and Deochland. Its burghers have high incomes and standards of living, with a “sare high” Menish Onwicking Index. It holds many alliances and is an ongoing limbstate of many international organisations, besunderly the Caserly Gemeanwealth (CG), the Europish Union (EU), and the Organisation of the North Atlantish Fordrawing (ONAF).
The word “England” is in itself is a forbinding of “Engle” and “land”. It comes from the Angleseaxish word Ænglaland, meaning the “Land of the Angles”. The word “Angle”, and thus “Engle”, comes from the Orgermanish word *angulō, which means “fishhook”, which mayhaps refers to the livelihood of the Angles as fishermen or to the fishhook-like shape of Angeln, the old homeland of the Angles, which is now in the Sleswick-Holstone province of Deochland.
When the old Germanish stemmes of the Angles, Seaxens, Jutes, and Frieses inwandered into the ielands of the former Romish province of Britannia, driving away the Romish-Celtish folk who already lived in the ord, in the 5th Yearhundred YL, bringing their tongues with them, the lands they settled bore their names, like what is today's Wesseax (West Seaxen), for byspel.
After King Alfred the Great of Wesseax foroned the many kingrics in South and Middle England, he was titled the “King of the Angleseaxish”. It was his eldson, King Ethelstan of Wesseax, who became the first “King of England”, or Rex Anglorum in the Latinish writings by his scribes, after bringing Northumberland under his rule. During its gesheede, “England” came to be the name of the whole group of ielands making up Britannia.
Its folk can be called “Engles”, “Englanders”, “Englers”, or “Englishmen”.
The first true menish folks, those of the species Homo sapiens, to settle in the lands to become England, called Britannia by gesheeders after its Romish name, came around 30,000 years ago, learned through the stone tools from the Old Stone Eld were found in many places in the ieland. The folks who built the Stonehenge at around 8000 BC are likely the erves of those same folks, since the Indo-Europish first came to Britannia only after 1000 BC.
The Celts took over much of Britannia and Hibernia in the 1st yearthousand BC. They spoke the Ieland Celtish tongues of Pictish, Gaelish, and Britannish; only the offspring of the latter of these speeches, called Bretonish, is still spoken, namely in Lidwick. The Romers came later, first in 55 and 54 BC led by Julius Caesar, though he blundered and gave up. Claudius later sent Aulus Plautius to take Britannia in 43 YL, Aulus becoming its first Rector Provinciae.
Boudica, Queen of the Iceni, led an uprising against Rome in 60 YL, after the Romers greatly mishandled the Britons. She won many slaughts in the early days of fighting, killing thousands of Romish Legionarii and burning down their homes and farms; Nero even thought of leaving Britannia outright. However, she lost to Gaius Suetonius Paulinus and his men; Boudica was believed to have drank givet after her loss to take her own life instead of getting gefanged and forwalded by the Romers. Trajan furthered the forgreatening of Romish Britannia, his aoverings reaching as far north as Newcastle. His son, Hadrian, built the Hadrian's Wall in 122 to strengthen Rome's hold on Britannia and to ward against the Picts from the north. Christendom was brought to the whole Romish Riche, inholding Britannia, by behest of Constantine the Great in 313.
Drawing of Seaxish crigers
By the beginning of the 5th yearhundred, Britannia fell away from the grip of Rome, just as the Germanish stemms, allgatheredly called the Angleseaxish, began inwandering into the land. The Britons and the Romers who stayed made their own lordships and kingdoms; they costened to ward against the Angleseaxish, but lost, and Britannia fell to Angleseaxish hands as the Britons were slowly killed off. The Angles made the kingrics of Northymbre, Myrce, and East Angla, the Seaxish made Esseax, Wesseax, and Susseax, and the Jutes made Kent. These seven small kingrics became known as the Heptarchy, from Greekish meaning “seven rulers”.
Christendom first came to the Angleseaxish in 597, when a monk named Augustine became the first Archbishop of Canterburgh; the first christly Angleseaxish king was Ethelbert of Kent, christened in 601. Beforehandly, the Angleseaxish believed in Germanish Heathenry, with gods such as Woden, Thunor, and Frig. The last heathen king, Arwald of Wight, was killed in slaught in 686, and by the end of the yearhundred, all of Angleseaxish Britannia had been christened. In this time, the Kingric of Myrce became the strongest of the Heptarchy's kingdoms.
The Wycings (Old Norse: Víkingr) from today's Norway and Danemark first came in 787 by Dorset, though the earliest well-known raid happened in 793 at the Holy Ieland of Lindisfarne, though the Wycings were already in Orkney and Shetland before this happened. Northymbre and East Angla quickly fell to the so-called “Great Heathen Heere”, who formed a state known today as the “Danelaw” (Danish: Danelagen), while Wesseax was barely winning against them. Then, King Alfred I of Wesseax, later known as Alfred the Great, took the throne in 871. His rule set forth many orfollowful slaughts against the Danelaw, driving them north and becoming the King of the Angleseaxish. His winnings were continued by his daughter, Queen Ethelflaed and eldson King Ethelstan, who placed the Danish Earls as their lendships; the latter became the first King of England in 927.
However, Wycing raids from Scandinavy kept on coming, and in 1013, Ethelred II lost the throne to Sweyn Forkbeard of Danemark. Sweyn died a year later, and the throne was returned to the Englers, but they lost it again in 1016 to another Dane, Cnut the Great, the son of Sweyn Forkbeard. Cnut ruled over the lands today known as the Northseariche, which inheld all of England, Norway, and Danemark, as well as parts of Swedeland. The erves of Cnut held kingdom over England until the death of Harthacnut, after which King Edward III “the Bekener”, one of the two Shieldpatrons of England along with Sanct George, of the House of Wesseax took back his throne in 1042.
Harold II losing his eye
Willhelm and the Normans would hold Southern England until his death while Harold, and upon his own death, his son Godwin I, kept fighting from his strongholds in the North. Willhelm's crown fell on his son, Wilhelm II, known as “Willhelm the Mad” for his bouts of shouting at his knights for no good grounds and locking himself in his room. Willhelm the Mad's unovertful leadership led to his downfall by Godwin I's hand at the Belairing of Warwick. Willhelm II betook selfmurder by jumping off the wall of Warwick Castle in 1092, his men giving up stounds later.
Willhelm II's death marked the end of Normanish rule over England. Godwin I, his first wife dead without child, asked Willhelm II's widow, Cecile Capet, that they be wed, and she tostevened. He spent the next 20 years stamping out the Normanish ethelmen still fighting, either by killing them or making them swear true. King Godwin died in 1119, was followed by Godwin II, who ruled for little more than a year, giving the crown to Henric I. Henric's rule was mostly unupfally, lasting less than 10 years, though he did build many roads to and around the headstead. Henric was then followed by his daughter, Queen Gunhilda.
Queen Gunhilda's rule saw uprisings in Wales, which were all utterly quelled by a heere she led herself, slaughtering the Welsh folk to outstarving. She was betrothed to Godfrith Plantagenet, the Greeve of Anjou, Touraine, and Maine, whom she bewed a year into her kingship. This started the House of Godwin-Anjou, the House to rule England for the next 300 years. Gunhilda built strongholds along the edge with Scotland, as well as help grow the trade of wool, England's foremost trade good, with Europa. She also sought to take over Ireland, bidding for ships to be built, but died before the first English soldier landed. The undertaking of infalling Ireland itself fell on Edward IV, Gunhilda's son, who more or less beended the deed in 6 years. Edward, while still crown prince, bewed Heretogine Eleanor of Aquitaine, the strongest and micklest of the Frankric's lendlords.
English knights at the Crosstyges
Upon Harold III's, Edward IV and Eleanor's erf, taking of the crown, a great share of land formerly under French rule fell under direct lordship of the Godwin-Anjou kings. Harold III built up England's military might, quelling uprisings in Ireland and winning a crig with Scotland. Harold would also fight against the Saracens in the Third Crosstyge, where he would be known as “the Leweheart” for his skill in fighting and leading a heere. King Richard, Harold III's son, would not erve his father's skill in crig, losing all his landholdings in Frankric but the Heretogdom of Aquitaine and earning him the eckename “Lackland”. His Earldoms in Ireland also fell to uprisings he sought to stamp out with narrow orfollow, and he would die of dysentery while fighting.
His newborn son, Henric II, would become king, but true sway would be in the hands of Richard's brother, Ethelward, for Henric's early years as king. Henric would come at odds and later behead his uncle. He spent his rule fighting the Irish and bringing them back under English lordship, while also fighting the Scottish and French who were forseeching to take his lands.
King Edward V, called “Longshanks” for his towering height, would follow his father Henric II as king. He went on to fight the Irish where his father left off and crushed their uprising. Longshanks also thwarted an infalling by King Hrothbert de Bruys of Scotland and his knight Willhelm le Waleys, who were helped by King Philip IV of France. He pushed the Scottish heere back to Scotland and hanged both Hrothbert and Willhelm in Edinburgh in 1299, afterwards putting Earl Waldhere of Stewart, the former High Steward of Scotland, on the Scottish throne. This is why he is also known as the “Hammer of the Scots”. Queen Edith, his daughter, took the crown upon his death, and went to crig against the French forthwith...............
