For centuries of British history, the kingdoms of Scotland and England were at war with each other: Scotland wished to remain independent with its own monarch, while England wanted to expand its kingdom to include Scotland under one English monarch. When Elizabeth I died in 1603 without a direct heir, the next in line to the throne was Mary, Queen of Scot’s son, James VI who was King of Scotland. This meant that one monarch now reigned over two kingdoms via the Union of the Crowns. However, there was a technicality - although there was one monarch reigning over each kingdom, they remained independent kingdoms. Thus, in 1707, the Acts of Union sought to bring England and Scotland into one united kingdom under the name Great Britain.
