WEFOUNDIn The Kingdom of The Crow: a collection of poetry and prose


When Carl Linnaeus introduced the rank-based system of nomenclature into biology in 1735, the highest rank was given the name "kingdom" and was followed by four other main or principal ranks: class , order , genus and species . [1] Later two further main ranks were introduced, making the sequence kingdom, phylum or division , class, order, family , genus and species. [2] In the 1960s a rank was introduced above kingdom, namely domain (or empire) , so that kingdom is no longer the highest rank.

Prefixes can be added so subkingdom ( subregnum ) and infrakingdom (also known as infraregnum ) are the two ranks immediately below kingdom. Superkingdom may be considered as an equivalent of domain or empire or as an independent rank between kingdom and domain or subdomain. In some classification systems the additional rank branch (Latin: ramus ) can be inserted between subkingdom and infrakingdom, e.g., Protostomia and Deuterostomia in the classification of Cavalier-Smith. [3]

According to genetic data, although eukaryote groups such as plants, fungi, and animals may look different, they are more closely related to each other than they are to either the Eubacteria or Archaea. It was also found that the eukaryotes are more closely related to the Archaea than they are to the Eubacteria. Although the primacy of the Eubacteria-Archaea divide has been questioned, it has been upheld by subsequent research. [8] There is no consensus on how many kingdoms exist in the classification scheme proposed by Woese.

The Kingdom of the North is the name given to an independent realm that controlled the northern territories of the continent of Westeros . It is named after the North , one of the nine distinct regions of Westeros and the largest and most prominent in the kingdom. The kingdom was ruled by the King in the North , typically the head of House Stark , from their seat at Winterfell .

The kingdom was first founded by Brandon the Builder after the Long Night , but was conquered during the Targaryen conquest and made subservient to the Iron Throne . It was reestablished upon the proclamation of Robb Stark as the King in the North during the War of the Five Kings , but was again defeated by the Iron Throne. It was reestablished once more with the proclamation of Jon Snow , alleged bastard brother of Robb, as King in the North following the Battle of the Bastards . However, Jon eventually pledged himself to Daenerys Targaryen , thus returning the North back under the fold of the Seven Kingdoms under House Targaryen .

While those trapped beyond the Wall became the Free Folk , those south of the Wall began to come together and form kingdoms. Brandon the Builder raised Winterfell and took it as his seat, becoming the first King of Winter and forging the Kingdom of the North, ruling all the lands north of the Neck . House Stark continued to descend from his line, reigning as the Kings of Winter and later Kings in the North after successfully unifying the lands of the North against rival kings .

United Kingdom , island country located off the northwestern coast of mainland Europe. The United Kingdom comprises the whole of the island of Great Britain—which contains England , Wales , and Scotland —as well as the northern portion of the island of Ireland . The name Britain is sometimes used to refer to the United Kingdom as a whole. The capital is London , which is among the world’s leading commercial, financial, and cultural centres. Other major cities include Birmingham , Liverpool , and Manchester in England, Belfast and Londonderry in Northern Ireland , Edinburgh and Glasgow in Scotland, and Swansea and Cardiff in Wales.

The United Kingdom has made significant contributions to the world economy, especially in technology and industry. Since World War II, however, the United Kingdom’s most prominent exports have been cultural, including literature, theatre, film, television, and popular music that draw on all parts of the country. Perhaps Britain’s greatest export has been the English language, now spoken in every corner of the world as one of the leading international mediums of cultural and economic exchange.

The archipelago formed by Great Britain and the numerous smaller islands is as irregular in shape as it is diverse in geology and landscape. This diversity stems largely from the nature and disposition of the underlying rocks, which are westward extensions of European structures, with the shallow waters of the Strait of Dover and the North Sea concealing former land links. Northern Ireland contains a westward extension of the rock structures of Scotland. These common rock structures are breached by the narrow North Channel .

The adjective "British" is commonly used to refer to matters relating to the United Kingdom. The term has no definite legal connotation, but is used in law to refer to United Kingdom citizenship and matters to do with nationality . [52] People of the United Kingdom use a number of different terms to describe their national identity and may identify themselves as being British; or as being English, Scottish , Welsh , Northern Irish , or Irish; [53] or as being both. [54]

In 2006, a new design of British passport was introduced. Its first page shows the long form name of the state in English, Welsh and Scottish Gaelic . [55] In Welsh, the long form name of the state is "Teyrnas Unedig Prydain Fawr a Gogledd Iwerddon", with "Teyrnas Unedig" being used as a short form name on government websites. [56] However, it is usually abbreviated to "DU" for the mutated form "Y Deyrnas Unedig". In Scottish Gaelic, the long form is "Rìoghachd Aonaichte Bhreatainn is Èireann a Tuath" and the short form "Rìoghachd Aonaichte".

The early modern period saw religious conflict resulting from the Reformation and the introduction of Protestant state churches in each country. [67] Wales was fully incorporated into the Kingdom of England , [68] and Ireland was constituted as a kingdom in personal union with the English crown. [69] In what was to become Northern Ireland, the lands of the independent Catholic Gaelic nobility were confiscated and given to Protestant settlers from England and Scotland. [70]
