The Kingric of England, also known more ambightly as the Kingric and Caserric of England, sometimes as the English Riche, or onefoldly as England, is a land that lies in the northwest coast of Europa. Aside from her holdings in Europa, England holds a manifoldness of lands elsewhere; in America, Asia, Africa, and Oceania. England, while her heartland being an ieland, shares marks with many states across the world. Around 80 million folk 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 a gewaled gemoot known as the Lawthing. Her Queen-Caserine is Elisabeth II of the House of Hannover, who has led England since 1983—she is also Queen of Victorialand, Queensland, New Zealand, and Southafrica. Her 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.

Her headstead, London, is the twithe micklest stead in Europa by befolking, with more than 8 million folk living in it, after the Russish stead of Sanct Petersburgh. She is one of the Worldsteads with her great wealth and industry; London is also well known for her many landmarks that sightseers may beseek. Other mickle steads in the Kingric are Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, and Glasgow.

The English Riche was once micklest riche of all time. Though her might has faltered after the end of the Twithe Worldcrig and the latter half of the 20th yearhundred, freeing many of her colonies in Africa and Asia, she still stands mighty with her werthship and military. The bequest of English culture is seen all over the world, besunderly her former colonies. The English speech is also among the de facto Linguae Francae of Earth, being brooked worldwide for business, trade, and diplomacy.

She is in a seat of strength in Worldpolitic, being one of the World's Great Mightes. Her werthship is among the micklest in the world, having the world's fourth highest Gross Inlandsproduct after the Foroned States, Japan, and Deochland in that order. Her burghers have high incomes and standards of living, with a “sare high” Menish Onwicking Index. She holds alliances with a manifoldness of lands and is an ongoing limbstate in many worldwide organisations, besunderly the Caserly Gemeanwealth (CG), the Europish Union (EU), and the Organisation of the North Atlantish Fordrawing (ONAF).


Wordroot


Standbilth of Alfred the Great
The word “England” is in itself is a forbinding of the words “Engle” and “land”. It comes from the Angleseaxish word Ænglaland, meaning the “Land of the Engles”. The word “Engle” comes from the Orgermanish word *angulō, which likely means “fishhook”. This may be linked to the livelihood of the Angles as fishermen or to the fishhooklike shape of Angeln, the old homeland of the Engles, which is now in the Sleswick-Holstone province of Deochland.

The old Germanish stemmes of the Engles, Seaxens, Jutes, and Frieses inwandered into the ielands of the former Romish province of Britannia, driving away the Romish-Celtish wildlings scattered across the English Ielands, in the 5th Yearhundred YL. Bringing their tongues with them, the lands they settled bore their names, like what are today's Wesseax (West Seaxen) and Eastangle (East Engles), 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 her gesheede, “England” came to be the name of the whole group of ielands making up Britannia.

Her burghers may be called “Engles”, “Englers”, “Englanders”, or “Englishmen”, which are alikeworthy to “Englines”, “Englesters”, “Englanderines” or “Englishwomen” beteeingswise for burgherines.


Gesheede


Stonehenge, Wiltshire
Fore- and Old Gesheede

The first true menish leeds, those of the kind Homo sapiens, to settle in the lands to become the English Ielands, called Britannia by gesheeders after their Romish name, came around 30,000 years ago, learned through the stone tools from the Old Stonetide were found in many places in the ieland. Those who built the Stonehenge at around 8000 BC are likely the erves of that same folk, since the Indo-Europers first came to Britannia only after 1000 BC.

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—and even then, only by a handful of folk—namely in Lidwick. The Romers came later, first between 55 and 54 BC led by Julius Caesar, though he blundered and gave up, and then again in 43 YL led by Aulus Plautius under befeal of Caser Claudius. The inhomish Celts would not take this lightly, and would often begin uprisings against the Romish settlers—a known byspel of this is the uprising of Queen Boudica in the year 60. At first, she saw sige after sige against the Romers, to the point that Caser Nero had thought of forsaking Britannia, but she would be overwhelmed by one General Gaius Suetonius Paulinus and his legions, after which she and her daughters betook selfmurder with givet as to not let themselves be gefanged and forwalded by the Romers. Rome fanded to forgreaten his northernmost province, making expeditions as far north as the Pictish lands, but Caser Hadrian found further aoverings not worth the cost in Romish blood, and thus befealened the building of Hadrian's Wall.


Seaxish crigers
Middle Elds

By the 5th Yearhundred YL, Britannia had been quickly slipping from the grip of the Casers in Rome. Meanwhile, a group of Germanish stemms—mainly the Angles, Seaxens, and Jutes—allgatheredly called the Angleseaxish began settling the east and south of Britannia. The Romers and Britons who were left in the ielands and had grounded their own kingrics and forstdoms found themselves in stride against the Angleseaxish. In the turn of the 6th Yearhundred, these Britons had mostly been either killed or driven away to the north and east, and the Angleseaxish fastened themselves the rulers of their new home. The Angles built the kingrics of Northymbre, Myrce, and East Engle, the Seaxens made Esseax, Wesseax, and Susseax, and the Jutes grounded Kent. These seven small kingrics are now known as the Heptarchy, from Greekish meaning “seven rulers”.

Christendom would come to the Angleseaxish in the 590s YL, after a monk named Augustine had been sent by Pope Gregory I to christen King Ethelbert of Kent. Before this, the Angleseaxish believed in Germanish Heathenry, with gods such as Thunor, Woden, and Frig, among others. Augustine became the first ever Archbishop of Canterburgh in 597, and the last heathen Angleseaxish king, Arwald of Wight, was killed in 686. By the 700s, most, if not all, folk in the English Ielands had been christened. In this time, the Kingric of Myrce had fastened her might over the ieland.

The Wycings (Old Norse: Víkingr) of Scandinavey had been raiding and even settling some doles of the English Ielands at least as early as the 780s, with the first raid written down happening in Dorset in 787; the well-known raid at the Holy Ieland of Lindisfarne only happened in 793. The Wycings' “Mickle Heathen Heere” (Old English: Mycel Hæþen Here) landed in 865, crushing the Kingrics of Northymbre and East Engle and grounding a state known as the “Danelaw” (Danish: Danelagen). The Kingric of Wesseax barely withstood the Wycings' forthstride until King Alfred I of Wesseax, now known as Alfred the Great and deemed the groundlayer of England, took the throne in 871. His rule set forth an orfollowful stride against the Danelaw, and he drove the Danes north and was crowned the first “King of the Angleseaxens”. After his death, his daughter, Queen Ethelfled, and later on his eldson, King Ethelstan, throughwoned his sige and brought the Danish Earls under their overlordship—King Ethelstan became the first “King of England” as he had by then ruled over most of the land.


Harold II losing his eye
The 9th Yearhundred was one of stride and unsteadiness for England. In 1013, King Ethelred II, known as “the Unready”—a play on his name—was overthrown by King Sweyn Forkbeard of Danemark and banished to Normandy. When King Sweyn died, Ethelred II became king again, although now at crig against King Sweyn's son, Cnut, later called “the Great”. The year 1016 saw the crown switch between three kings, ending up on King Cnut's head. Cnut's sons, Harold Harefoot and Harthacnut, rose to the throne after him; Harthacnut became the last Danish King of England after his death by Edward Ethelredson's plot. Now King Edward III, he ruled for a time of foralikewise frith, putting foremost his belief after the deaths of his wife and son and thus becoming known as “the Bekener”. After Edward III died childless in 1066, three ethelmen sought the empty English throne for themselves: Harold Hardrede of Norway, Willhelm the Bastard of Normandy, and Harold II Godwinson of England. Harold II thwarted Harold Hardrede in the Slaught of Stamford Bridge before marching south to meet Willhelm the Bastard. Tired, the Engles fought but were driven back by the Normans in the Slaught of Hastings, where Harold II lost his eye to an arrow, thus earning the byname “One-eye”. Willhelm was crowned by the Archbishop of Canterburgh, though Harold fought on from the North. Their sons, Willhelm the Mad and Godwin Haroldson, would throughwone the crig after their deaths. Willhelm the Mad, mostly known for his bouts of yelling at his knights and locking himself in his room for days on end, lacked skills of worksome leadership, leading to his downfall at the Belairing of Warwick in 1092; Willhelm the Mad betook selfmurder by jumping off the Burgh of Warwick's walls, and the Normanish lords were driven off English land.


English knights at the Crosstyges
Queen Gunhilda I, an afterbear of Harold II, had a shaky start to her rule as she was crowned at 17 years old in 1129. In 1134, the Forstdom of Wales rose up against her, and in this uprising she proved herself by leading the English heere at the front with a longaxe as her weapon, earning her the byname “Axebearer” and utterly quelling the uprising; in the years after, the inhomish Welsh folk were driven to fornotting. The Greeve of Andegavia, Godfrith Plantagenet, sought to bewed the Queen to ground an alliance against their shared foe, the Heretogdom of Normandy, which led to the groundlaying of the House of Godwin-Andegavia as well as setting England on a path of tocomely stride against the kings of Frankric. Pope Hadrian IV had sent forth a bull giving Greeve Godfrith, and thus his offspring, lordship over Ireland in 1155. However, Godfrith died in 1167, and the title went to his and Gunhilda's son, Prince Edward Gunhildson. Gunhilda I and Prince Edward began the Overfall of Ireland in 1169, though Gunhilda would die of oldness in 1173 leaving the now King Edward IV to aover Ireland on his own. Outtake some Irish Earldoms, the English have taken over most of the ieland by 1175 and Edward IV ended his tyge there to see to other sorrows.
