Topic - Kingdom Of Great Britain

The Kingdom of Great Britain, also occasionally referred to as the United Kingdom of Great Britain, was a sovereign state in northwest Europe, in existence from 1707 to 1801. It came into being on May 1st, 1707, with the merger of the Kingdom of Scotland and the Kingdom of England, as agreed in the 1706 Treaty of Union and ratified by the Acts of Union 1707, to create a single kingdom encompassing the whole of the island of Great Britain and its minor outlying islands, excluding Ireland—which remained a separate jurisdiction under the British crown. A single parliament and government, based in Westminster, controlled the new kingdom. The kingdoms had shared the same monarch since James VI, King of Scots became King of England in 1603 following the death of Queen Elizabeth I. - Source: Wikipedia
