This royal throne of kings, this scepter'd isle,

This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,

This other Eden, demi-paradise,

This fortress built by Nature for herself

Against infection and the hand of war,

This happy breed of men, this little world,

This precious stone set in the silver sea,

Which serves it in the office of a wall,

Or as a moat defensive to a house,

Against the envy of less happier lands,

This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England

Errr just to point out the fact there is more than England on this island :bleh:

I know Americans think the whole lot is England :facepalm:
I know that. However, up until the 40s the word England was used to mean the whole island. Plus it's from Richard 2nd which is 14th century so the Scots and Welsh were still running around naked eating grass! Lol
