Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland and was one of the leading industrial cities in the world.

The Kingdom of Scotland Edit


The kingdom of Scotland first came about as an independent sovereign state early during the Middle Ages, and remained as such until 1707. In 1603 by inheritance King James VI of Scotland also became king of Ireland, and England which was known as the Union of the Crowns. This union came about after the death of Queen Elizabeth I of England, and James VI was the only surviving child of Mary, Queen of Scotland. On May 1, 1707 Scotland entered into a political union with England to create the new Kingdom of Great Britain, this also led to a new parliament of Great Britain which succeeded the parliaments of England and Scotland. On January 1, 1801 Great Britain entered into a political union which created the Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and this remained in place until 1922.
