In northern Jutland, a Germanic-speaking peoples called Anglo-Saxons came into the British isles. The Anglo-Saxons lived quite peacefully, being invaded by Vikings multiple times, but it's no big deal. That is, until Normandyball attacked Englandball in what is known today as the Norman conquest of England, bringing in the French language and a new flag for England, with 2 blue quadrants with fleur de lis and 2 red quadrants with 3 lions.
Kingdom of Englandball during the 1300's was at war with Kingdom of Franceball for 116 years, so we'll just call it the 100 Years War because "the 116 Years War" doesn't have the same ring as "the 100 Years War". Kingdom of Englandball managed to hold off the French for a long time until the French pushed back and secured a victory.
1455, Englandball was at war with itself in what is now know as the War of the Roses, this was caused after the current king was being a horrible king with absolutely no kingly talents whatsoever. The 2 belligerents were the House of Lancaster (of which the current king was a part of) and the House of York (who wanted to overthrow the king), and in the beginning, the kings wife was busy doing all the fighting while the king hid. This lasted for a long time until the Yorks successfully overthrew the king, until being overthrown thereafter by a new house known as the House of Tudor.
Englandball was a little late to the colonial game, and so, he tried his hardest to create its own empire, founding colonies only to fail much later. That is until the year 1624 when he colonized St. Kitts and Nevisball and Barbadosball successfully. Englandball was also really good at stealing clay from every other nation, gobbling up Gibraltarball and Jamaicaball from Spainball and also halting Netherlandsball from eating up the Caribbean, making England the American powerhouse until 1707 when he
anschlussed Scotlandball to form UKball, effectively ending the English Empire and starting the British Empire.
