The Republic of Ireland (Poblacht na hÉireann) was formerly a constituent state of the United Kingdom of Great Britain, the Netherlands, and Ireland. Ireland declared independence after the fall of the British monarchy and the establishment of the Republic of Great Britain and Ireland. Ireland is a member of the Commonwealth of British Nations, acknowledging King Joseph as "Head of the Commonwealth".
From the 12th century, Ireland became subordinate to the Kingdom of England, gradually becoming ruled more closely.
Ireland became the Kingdom of Ireland in 1541 in personal union with the Kingdom of England, a state which continued to exist until 1798, when, during the early stages of Second Global War, the French invaded at the same time as a native Irish rebellion. A new Éire Republic was proclaimed, later altered to Éire Kingdom, with a relative of Napoleon on her throne.
After Napoleon's downfall, the British sought to reintegrate Ireland and the Netherlands. This was achieved by the Reunification Act, which established the United Kingdom of Great Britain, the Netherlands, and Ireland, consisting of the four states of England, Scotland, Ireland, and the Netherlands.
This state lasted until after the Third Global War when the United Kingdom was abolished and replaced by the centralized Republic of Great Britain and Ireland. Ireland Scotland, their parliaments having been abolished declared independence. With France and Rhineland threatening war, the British government was forced to acknowledge their independence. England (with Wales) became the Second English Commonwealth.
