The United Kingdom of Great Britain was a state in Europe from the Act of Union between the parliaments of the Kingdom of England and the Kingdom of Scotland in 1707. Before this date the two Kingdoms remained politically independent but shared a single monarch from the accession of King James VI, King of Scots in March 1603.

In 1801 the Kingdom of Ireland was merged with that of Great Britain to form the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.
