DescriptionThe Monarchy of England merged with the Monarchy of Scotland into Monarchy of United Kingdom on May 1, 1707.

"The Acts of Union were twin Acts of Parliament passed in 1707 (going into effect on 26 March) in the Scottish and the English Parliaments. The effect was twofold:

1. To create a new Kingdom of Great Britain (though the name was used on occasion since 1604 to refer to the separate Kingdoms of England and Scotland, which since 1603 had a shared monarch, when speaking of the kingdoms together. Wales was also part of this Great Britain since it had been absorbed by England by the Acts of Union 1536-1543).
2. To dissolve both parliaments and replace them with a new Parliament of the Kingdom of Great Britain."
