The Frisian Islands are an archipelago off the coast of north-west Europe, in the North Sea. The Frisian Islands are usually divided into the West Frisian Islands, which are part of the Netherlands, the East Frisian Islands, which are part of Germany, and the North Frisian Islands, which are divided between Germany and Denmark.[1]

The islands are also notable for their language, Frisian (which has several dialects), which is still spoken by several thousand residents. The Frisian language is generally considered to be etymologically the closest surviving relative of English.
