War, movements, and politics - these are the most important dates in British history!

British history has been shaped by invasions, internal conflict, and global expansion, traits that can be traced back to the beginning of the country. The first inhabitants of the island nation, the Britons, were quickly overrun by Anglo-Saxon and Roman invaders in the first few centuries of anno Domino. As these different cultures fought for power, various kingdoms emerged across Britain. Eventually, the Vikings found their way to Britain, causing chaos before merging into the English world, both politically and culturally. Around this time, the Kingdom of England began to take shape. 

As conflicts between the Kingdom of England and countries from the European mainland, particularly France, continued, England developed politically and economically with power switching between the King and Parliament. The Church also became a powerful force, which both the Pope and the King of England tried to control. These conflicts would influence centuries of British history, and when the New World was discovered, many of these conflicts only escalated further, causing rifts and changes that would shape the future of Western democracy and the world as a whole.
