Define England =)

The HRE fell in the early 1806 during the Napoleanic wars and it wasn't long after if not already that the English kings and queens held very little if any actual power in the government.

Through out history The British Isles have been divided into seperate kingdoms on numerous occasions including main land "England"

She has always been troubled nation =)

She went through a period known as the British Empire however to my knowledge I don't believe the monarchy ever took on title of Emperor.

On top of that I don't believe she is technically called a monarchy anymore... She is more along the lines of a parliamentory republic which still has a royal family but is not technically a ruling body in any way shape or form.

That is a vague question but I will just leave it at false =)

She spent about a Decade as a Fully Fledged Republic after the Civil War before they restored the Monarchy

False they were briefly a Republic if I am not mistaken. I bet someone already answered this anyhow.

False, the Anglo Saxon Kings Native to England were overturned by Danes in the East, and Normans in the South and Vikings from the North. In order to settle Treaties and Wars later English Monarchs married into the families of Continental Europe, Spain, France etc. Not to mention Scotland and Ireland.

Finally after the Civil War and Republic the Monarchy was restored, and finally branched into a Germanic Monarchy...which changed its name be depoll during the gap between World Wars from Saxe-Coburg, to Windsor.

However, since the Romans left, the British Isles has never been Rulled from abroad, without the invaders keeping the British Throne intact (UNLIKE the Scotish throne)

True...although in the middle ages long after Rome, the Roman Catholics occasionally gave the title of Emporar out to various important people and Monarchs...and some of them may have been English
