When did Wales become part of England?

Wales has not become part of England. Wales is it's own country next to England. It is in the UK but that also consists of Scotland and the six counties of Northern Ireland.

--In 1535, after years of occupation, it was annexed to English law (but kept its own language and culture). We are all British and part of the United Kingdom now. We are "countries within a country" (U K goverment). Wales has a National Assembly and no British country owns the other - it is a union. the UK parliament is in London, England.

Answer

The principality was brought under English control in 1284 when the Statute of Rhuddlan was enacted, the remaining Welsh territory was administered under the Marcher Lords until the Laws in Wales acts of 1536 (and 1542) were passed making England and Wales a single legal state. Sometimes referred to as the Act of Union between England and Wales similar to the Scottish/English Act although the naming of it as such is unofficial and didn't occur until the 20th century. Under devolution certain budget and legislative powers were given to the Welsh Assembly in 1998 although primary legislative powers remain with the government in Westminster and the legal system for England and Wales remains the same. This is in contrast to Scotland which always retained a separate legal base

Wales is not the real name for the country you are thinking of. It's real name is Cymru. Wales is a name made up by the Anglo-Saxon (English) invaders that actually pushed the original Britons back to what is now 'Wales' and Scotland. They failed to take over entirely because of the mountains and so in 'Wales' the Cymry settled. So in fact, England is the new country in the 'United Kingdom' and if you like, you could well ask yourself "When did England become part of Wales"?

When did Wales join the UK?

The principality was brought under English control in 1284 when the Statute of Rhuddlan was enacted, the remaining Welsh territory was administered under the Marcher Lords until the Laws in Wales acts of 1536 (and 1542) were passed making England and Wales a single legal state. Sometimes referred to as the Act of Union between England and Wales similar to the Scottish/English Act although the naming of it as such is unofficial and didn't occur until the 20th century.

The Crowns of England and Scotland were joined in 1603 and the Parliaments joined under the Act of Union in 1707 being known as the Kingdom of Great Britain. However it was not until the union of 1801 that the title the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland came in to being and therefore technically the answer as to Wales joining the UK is 1801.

If you mean england 1284 but otherwise 1801.

When was the Celtic festival of Samhain held?

One of the four major Celtic festivals,Samhain was celebrated on 1 November and the night that preceded it,making it in terms of time the equivalent of the modern Halloween.A pastoral festival,Samhain marked the passing of one pastoral year and the beginning of another year.At the time of Samhain,the livestock were brought in from the fields,some to be slaughtered for food and others to be kept for breeding purposes during the festival.Samhain was also the time when the usual barriers between the mortal world and the otherworld were suspended.At Samhain there were great gatherings,fairs and markets and horse-races.It was thought that spirits from the otherworld could freely visit the mortal world and that mortals could see and penetrate the otherworld.This connection between witches and other supernatural forces remain still today at the same date.Ritual fires were lit but only after all the fires were extinguished and relit from a ceremonial fire lit by the Druids.Samhain was a time of great significance to the Celts,and their legends reflect the strange and important things that happened on the festival.For example,it was the time that the people of Nemedh had to pay their annual tribute to the Fomoril,a tribute that was extremely crippling,consisting as it did of two-thirds of their corn,wine,milk and some say even their children.It was also the date of the second battle of Magh Tuiredh,and on the night before Samhain the Daghda mated with Morrigan as she straddled the River Unius.Samhain was the time of year when Ailen annually burned down Tara,after lulling the guards to sleep with enchanted music,untill he was killed by Fionn Cumhaill.

Where was Llywelyn the Great from?

Llywelyn ap Iorwerth, later known as Llwywelyn the Great, was born in the former castle at Dolwyddelan, now vanished. When his father, Iorweth, died he was probably taken to Powys to his mother's family when his uncles took power in Gwynedd. There has been speculation that he went to Shropshire but this argument has mostly been refuted now.

Llywelyn returned to fight for Gwynedd in his late teens and successfully gained control of the lands that should have reverted to him on his father's death. Gerald of Wales wrote that he was only fourteen when he fought his uncles, but he was proabably a little older and was flattering his patron.

They didn't actually 'unite'. Wales was conquered by the English in the Middle Ages and officially annexed in 1536.
England does not "own" Wales, both countries are part of the United Kingdom.

Your text book is wrong. Wales has a status within the UK which is similar to individual states within the United States.
