In Lucus Yngland (Auld Ynglisc Ingianland, Ingialland, Middel Ynglisc Yngeland, Yngland) was named after the Ingaevones, or rather their god Ing. In Lucal Latin it was to begin with called Ingaeuonia Magna or Ingaeuonia Ulterior, but as the Continental Ingaevonia changed name and passed out of memory it came to be called merely Ingaevonia.

The 5th century Germanic conquerors of Britannia called themselves Ingian or Inglingas (Lucally the ancient dynasty of Sweden was sometimes called the same, but more often Scylfingas/Skilfingar). During the Norman period those loyal to the sake of Yngland came to be called Inglingsc men, which in turn became shortened to Yngliscmen and used as the name of the people, since Ingliens or Ingies had become a slur in Norman and pro-Norman usage.

Colonies

Preoccupied by the conflict with the Normans Yngland came late to the western hemisphere, but managed to take over some Norman possessions in Vestralvia, and during the war between Hwitmanland and the Christian colonies the Ynglisc managed to take over Maigeamij and much of Þe Carivijs, and later expanded into Taisceaws. The Ynglisc colonies generally enjoyed peaceful relations with their neighbors the Fijvþieds, due to common hostile relations with Al-Mašiqā.

In the early modern period, after the decline of Arabic power in Africa the Ynglisc conquered southern Africa and came to control the trade routes between Europe and the East. In the late 18th century, having lost their western colonies, the Ynglisc moved into Asia and managed to conquer India.
