The Scottish Empire was a major power throughout the Colonial Period, but starting in the 19th Century, it began to decline. In 1950, it was reorganized into the Scottish Commonwealth; though some have argued that Scotland still has an Empire, as it still controls areas of Europe, Africa and the Americas.
Though the Kingdom of Scotland was established in 843, it didn't grow into an Empire until the Age of Discovery. In the 17th Century, Scottish settlers established two major colonies: Nova Scotia in North America and New Caledonia in Central America; which gave Scottish America a foothold on the New World for centuries.
In 1706, when it was proposed that England and Scotland should Unite (they had been united in many respects since 1603), the Scottish people were utterly unwilling to accept the Union, and they went as far as declaring James Francis Edward Stuart to be King of Scotland, which severed all political ties to England. The King of England (William III) was outraged that he had been overthrown in Scotland, and the two countries appeared to be on the brink of War, but eventually the two countries settled peacefully.
This peace didn't last, however, as the Scottish and English Empires fought on opposite sides of the Seven Years' War; the American War of Independence; and the Irish War of Independence - all less than a Century after their separation.
Meanwhile, the 18th Century proved to be the Scottish Empire's Golden Age. Scottish America saw the addition of Scottish Guyana; and several colonies in Western and Southern Africa were founded, and grew quickly. Scottish India was also established during this period, and by the 1800s, it had become one of the largest colonies in Asia.
