Introduction

The Kingdom of Englaland was a medieval nation in southern Britain. The Kingdom was established in 942 as a successor state to the Kingdom of Wessex. Æthelric the Great was the first King of Englaland, and was the first to employ the royal style King of the Angles and Saxons. The Kingdom of Englaland was composed of Wessex, Mercia, East Anglia, and Wales.

In 1148, Eric II of Englaland declared war on Normandy in order to prevent a personal union and eventual annexation of neighboring Wales. The war lasts five years and ends with an Anglo-Saxon victory. Wales is released by Normandy, as well as the cession of all Anglo-Saxon and Irish territory held by Normandy to Englaland. In 1154, the Welsh Kingdom, without a King, recognizes Eric II as both a saviour and a new monarch, thus putting Wales into a personal union under Englaland.

After another successful war on the Normans from 1183 - 1193, the Kingdom of Northumbria resolved to elect the Anglo-Saxon King to their own throne as well. The last Northumbrian King, Knútr III, died unpopular and without issue in 1200, and what followed was Harold I taking the throne.

Several more personal unions, inheritances, and annexations involving Angoulême, Brabant, Flanders, and Holland occurred in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, further expanding Englaland's wealth and that of its rulers.
