The Kingdom of England is a a Sovereign Nation located in the British Isles established in 927 as a result of the Unification of the Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms located in the region.

In 927 the various Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms united under Athelstan to form the Kingdom of England. After a brief personal union with Norway and Denmark between 1016 and 1042 England was conquered by the Duke of Normandy who became King of England in 1066 with London quickly establishing itself as the largest and principal commercial centre.

Through the 12th and 13th Centuries England consolidated it's rule over large portions of France forming an Angevin Empire that lasted until the Early 13th Century after the Capetian Victory during the Capetian–Plantagenet rivalry which saw the Capetian and Plantagenet Dynasties compete for the French Throne. After their defeat in 1337 the rivalry between both dynasties were reignited by Edward III who started the Hundread Years War by claiming the French Throne , a claim that was not seriously pursued by his successors.
