When did Scotland become Scotland?
The area now known as Scotland was first inhabited around 14,000 years ago at the end of the last Ice Age. (There may have been earlier inhabitants, but if so they left no trace.) It truly became Scotland, the land of the Scots, with the arrival of the Scoti or Scotti, Gaelic-speaking raiders from Ireland, in the fifth century A.D. Prior to that time the land was inhabited by Picts and Britons and known (at least to the Romans) as Caledonia.

Answer King James VI of Scotland became King James I of England in 1603 when he inherited the throne from Queen Elizabeth I. This is often referred to as the "personal union" of the crowns, because the same person held the two crowns at the same time. in 1697 - 1700, the Scots attempted to cr…eate a colony in modern Panama, called Darien. the scheme gathered huge public support and vast funding. The colony, however was a disaster, most of the colonists killed, and the invested money lost. The nation was bankrupted by the failure, with crippling debt to London. As a result, On 1st May 1707, the Acts of Union legally formalised the Union, and the the country became "The United Kingdom of Great Britain", which included Scotland and Wales. The parliament was to be in London and there would a single monarch, initially Queen Anne. The debts of the Darien scheme were compensated, as part of the conditions of Union. ( Full Answer )

"Don't believe Shakespeare, Macbeth was one of Scotland's better kings." Actually, you should believe Shakespeare since he wrote the play. And Macbeth was not "one of Scotland's better kings," for two reasons. 1). Macbeth was evil and bloodthirsty, only thinking about himself and how to get …more riches, and could care less about any other obligations he had as king. 2). Macbeth was also not even a real king, he was just told about in a story. ( Full Answer )

I think the chance of Scotland becoming independent will be an idea that will be left to brew for fifty years maybe until we deal with our major social problems obesity drugs and poor unemployment we would also partake in the idea of England invading with their larger army to steal our oil
Always. The Crowns of Scotland & England were united in 1603 when Scotland's James VI inherited the English Throne. The Parliaments were united in 1707.. That's not 'always'. Scotland is not a 'British Territory'. It is a country within the United Kingdom. Just as England, Wales and Northern Irelan…d.. Scotland has always been part of the British Isles, we're talking geography, not politics, at least that's how I understood the question.. Yeah, fair enough. ( Full Answer )

There are many arguments for and against Scotland becoming an illegal country, one supporting this argument is that Scotland's government would be able to decide a lot more, whereas now many things are decided for Scotland through Westminster, in England.

That's a matter of opinion. They have considerable self-rule now. . No! If we become independent we will not survive. We will have little money, we will not be a large super power in the UN or EU. We will simply be a tiny little country attached to England that once used to be part of the United …Kingdom. . Yes! The North Sea Oil reserves are forecasted to last at least another 30 years. Currently the revenue from the oil goes directly to Westminster then they give us some of it back in the form of a budget, so an independent Scotland would have the right to keep the revenue from oil in Scotland as it is one of her natural resources. North Sea currently produced more oil than Kuwait and has the largest oil reserves in Europe, oil rich countries are rarely classed as having "little money." This is one reason and not even the strongest reason. A second reason is that Scotland has the highest potential for renewable energies such as wind and tidal power. These natural resources are currently being developed. In fact it is believed that developed to full potential it could harvest enough energy to meet 25% of Europe's energy demands. In these days of increasing calls for clean energy sources and several countries agreeing to lower their use of fossil fuels it stands for Scotland to become the energy powerhouse of Europe in the future. In my opinion, Scotland should not become independent because we will have very little money, we wont be a large super power in the UN or EU. Scotland will be a very small country attached to England that once was part of the United Kingdom! ( Full Answer )

Scotland joined the political union of the Kingdom of Great Britainin 1707. Scotland had been an independent sovereign state in the EarlyMiddle Ages and had continued to exist with their own monarchs andlaws until the early 18th century. In 1603, Queen Elizabeth I ofEngland died with no heirs and pa…ssed the throne to her cousin,Mary, Queen of Scots' son, James VI of Scotland. He then becameJames I of England as well. At this time, Scotland entered what isknown as a "personal union" with England (and Wales) and Ireland. Apersonal union is the combination of multiple states with the samemonarch but with distinct boundaries, laws, and interests. Afterthe overthrow of his heir, James VII of Scotland and II of England,in the 1689 Glorious Revolution, William and Mary. Without aScottish king fighting for Scotland, most of Scotland fell into afamine, with many Scots bankrupting themselves trying to invest ina colony in Panama. The Scottish elite agreed to the Treat of Unionin 1707 and the Acts of Union were passed shortly thereafter by theEnglish and Scottish Parliaments. Scottish culture and national identity have remained very muchalive and distinct from English culture. When the referendum ofScottish independence (whether or not Scotland should break apartthe Kingdom of Great Britain) in September 2014, a majorityrejected this opportunity and voted to maintain the union.

Small units are usually stronger when they are part of a larger unit. Therefore, Scotland is probably better off by being part of the United Kingdom.
Initially, King James VI of Scotland became King James I of England in 1603 as heir of Elizabeth I. This united the crowns England and Scotland. Slowly the governments merged, with most power gravitating to London. In 1707 the parliaments of Scotland and England merged to form the United Kingdom.
