The Ordnance Survey Blog The differences between Great Britain, Great Britain and the British Isles
In fact, they knew that they consisted of many archipelagos, including two very large ones (the biggest known to most Europeans at the time) named Albion and Iwernia. Here, Great Britain will also go down in the annals. The United Kingdom only applies to the principal isle of the British Isles.
They do not cover any of the neighbouring islets. People of the biggest isle knew how great the Romans knew only from the accounts of their wells. You knew it was by far the greatest and called it Great. Faeroe Isles - These are not British Isles because they were so isolated that neither the Greeks nor the Romans or Teutons knew of their being.
These Bretons and Galicians all talked a mix of British and Galician language (all similar to Gaelic). The Channel Islands - these do not really belong to the British Isles. It is also part of the British Isles. The Brittany and Brittany became part of the Breton Empire after they were taken over by the advanced Breton people. (Remember that this encompassed many of today's Irish tribes).
Although they are not part of the British Isles from a technical point of view, they are often (wrongly) classified as dependent on the English kroon (and now the British crown) as such. For" the crown" is in reality not the actual coronet itself, but Her Majesty, the queen of (this piece goes on forever, believe me.) or whoever the ruling mayor is.
The Crown Dependencies are owned solely by the ruling royalty and are separated from the UK state. While I know that many Irishmen (some, as I said, are happy to be British) are angry that they are described as British and that they are part of the British Isles, the truth is that their forefathers were those who considered their territories to be in the British Isles.
In fact, Bretannia and Hibernia were the two biggest British Isles for over 2,000 years, long before they were governed by a single royal. It was inhabited by a large number of strains that classify these small island as Pretannia. Oh..... the meticulous part of my character must point out that the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is not the Union's full name.
At best, attorneys are meticulous, and attorneys who work for the Crown bring their pedantry to a level that would ruin your will to survive.
