2.5 Summary of Section 1
England, Scotland and Wales are nations.
Wales was conquered by the English in 1282 and its parliamentary union with England took place in 1536.
The United Kingdom of Great Britain was formed by the Act of Union of 1707, although the term Great Britain had been in use since 1603, when James VI of Scotland became James I of England (including Wales). Later unions created the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and, after 1921, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
