Abstract

Along with Wales, Scotland, and Brittany, Ireland is part of the Atlantic peripheries to which the Celtic peoples retreated when confronted with the Romans and later the Germanic tribes. In the British Isles the Anglo-Saxons began to conquer Wales and Scotland already in the ninth century; in the twelfth century the English King Henry II. invaded Ireland and claimed it for the English crown (1171 oath of allegiance of the Irish Bishops). The independence and self-sufficiency of the Irish nobility was destroyed in the centuries to come, mainly under the rule of Elizabeth I, and the island was pressed into colonial status.
