    Popularly held to be between Scotland and England (realistically there were Scots on both sides). And no it's not something to do with the Wars of Independence.

    Was surprised that it was so long ago really, and the fact that when I saw what it was, I missed the relevance of linking it to my last question. *smiles* I loved history by the way.
    Question - How did Harold supposedly die at the battle of Hastings?

    Union of the Crowns occured in 1603, but the UK wasn't formed until 1707 IIRC. James the 6th became King of both countries in 1603, but they weren't joined immediately.
