When it was founded[edit]

I dont know — Preceding unsigned comment added by TechBoy224 (talkcontribs) 19:59, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

Have you read the part of the article that says: "...This brought about the political unification of England, first accomplished under Æthelstan in 927 and definitively established after further conflicts by Eadred in 953." ...? It was not "founded" - it emerged through a complex set of processes over several centuries. Ghmyrtle (talk) 20:48, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
Almost no countries 'founded' 500+years ago that exist today have an exact formation date. England is no exception.--109.149.122.34 (talk) 21:13, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
