Treaty of Union In January 1707. Known as the Treaty of Union and when it was passed the parliaments of Scotland and England ceased to exist. There would now be a Parliament …of Great Britain. The majority of the Scots people did not want this but it was believed by the Scottish Parliament that it (Scotland) could no longer survive on it's own. Something of Scotland's independence remained. It was to keep it's own Church, Legal System, Education System, Royal Burghs and Courts and of course it already had it's own culture and history. But the seat of government now moved 400 miles south (to London). In June 1713, Scots peers introduced a bill to repeal the Union. It was narrowly defeated.However, Scotland would regain it's own Parliament (through a democratic vote) in 1997 with some powers devolved from the UK parliament in London.

None. Great Britain is an island, so it is a physical entity, not a political one. The island existed long before any kingdoms were created, so no kingdoms united to create it…. On it are the three countries: England, Scotland and Wales. They, along with Northern Ireland, form the United Kingdom, but Northern Ireland is on the island of Ireland, so it is not part of Great Britain.....The Kingdoms of Scotland and England joined together in 1603 to form the United Kingdom of Great Britain. In 1801, Ireland was incorporated to form the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. In 1922, 26 counties of Ireland became independent and called themselves Eire (now the Republic of Ireland).
