Subject: RE: BS: Is Monarchy Obsolete in the UK?
The current United Kingdom dates from 1603 with accession of James VI to the English throne. In the previous century there was a short-lived United Kingdom of France and Scotland under Mary and Francois, though some of the provisions lasted until the Entente Cordiale of 1905.
