Kingdom of East Anglia

The Kingdom of East Anglia, also known as the Kingdom of the East Angles (Old English: Ēast Engla Rīce; Latin: Regnum Orientalium Anglorum), was a small independent Anglo-Saxon kingdom that comprised what are now the English counties of Norfolk and Suffolk and perhaps the eastern part of the Cambridgeshire Fens. The kingdom formed after it was settled by a pagan Germanic-speaking people known as the Angles, who arrived after the end of Roman rule in Britain during the fifth century.
