England is a country that is part of the United Kingdom. It takes its name from the Angles, one of the Germanic tribes who settled on the island during the 5th and 6th centuries.

The Kingdom of England, which after 1284 included Wales, ceased being a separate sovereign state on 1 May 1707, when the Acts of Union put into effect the terms agreed in the Treaty of Union the previous year, resulting in a political union with the Kingdom of Scotland to create the Kingdom of Great Britain.

In this documentary you will see the modern royal family of Saxe-Coburg and Windsor, whose direct lineage stretches back to Queen Victoria and continues up to Elizabeth II.
