Follow the family tree of the Kings and Queens of England, from to the present day. The origins of kingship in England can be traced to the second century BC when Celtic and Belgic tribesmen, emigrated from continental Europe and settled in Britain displacing or absorbing the aboriginal inhabitants. The settlers established a number of tribal kingdoms, stretching as far north as Yorkshire, where the powerful Brigantes from the area of modern Burgundy and Parisii whose name survives in the city of Paris, their original homeland held sway. The tree below displays linage from Celtic Britain before the Roman invasion to the Norman Conquest of the establishment of the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, the coming of Christianity and the unification of England.
