Identity of England

This chapter discusses the development of the English state with the making of a British state in the incremental Union of England, Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. The key relationship here was with the Scots, though the critical one turned out to be with the Irish. The uniting of kingdoms started in 1603 when James VI of Scotland and the House of Stuart became James I of England, single monarch of two kingdoms.

Keywords:   English state, British state, Union of England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, James VI, monarchy
