Some of the Danish Vikings settled on the Normandy Coast with the Frankish Carolingian Kings blessing.
They promptly converted to Catholicism, and William the new Duke of Normandy, set about to conquer England across the channel.
He would fight long and hard, but at the end of protracted conflict secured England, beat back the Irish and the Scotts, and was crowned King.
He managed to drive out most of the English aristocrats and Baron’s seize control of the Catholic Church in England, and rob the previous English Nobles of most of their land and wealth, leaving less than 5% of it in the hands of the indigenous English.
He further pledged it all to Rome in exchange for the Pope’s blessing to rule it. Though he would spend the bulk of his time, consolidating and protecting his toe hold in Europe and France back in Normandy, England had fallen under Rome’s and the House of Dan’s control, that still controls it to this day.

WE, the UK, are the biggest problem this planet has ever faced. We crash into other countries and trample all over their ideals and principles, force are beliefs on foreigners and constantly threaten those who either refuse to comply or make a stand against us, with violence and war. We helped enslave the Africans, killed hundreds of thousands of native Americans and forced Australian aborigines to comply to our rules. We represent everything that is wrong with the world today! I, for one, don't blame any foreigner for hating and dispising us.

Face it, the empire is nothing today and we're clinging on to the coat of the US to help keep us afloat in this world. If it wasn't for the US, we'd be screwed.
God bless America is what I say. The greatest country on earth.
