Stent o Northumbrie, c. 700 AD

Thi Kingdom o Northumbria (Aud Inglish: Norþanhymbra Rīċe; Latin: Regnum Northanhymbrorum) wes an Anglo-Saxon Kingdom i what is noo Northren Ingland an Sooth-East Scitland. It wes formed wi the unification o twe auder Kingdoms, knawn as Bernicie an Deira, that wes divided aroond the river Tees.

Efter the Viking invasion ov Ingland, Northumbria sooth o the Tees wes tyen ower bi the Danes an becam an independent Anglo-Scandinavian Kingdom knawn as the Kingdom o York (Jórvík). The northrenmyest pairt o Northumbria, ayont the river Tweed, wes suin annexed bi Scotland follaïn the Battle o Carham. Bi the second hawf o the Middle Ages, aa that wes left o Northumbria wes the rump on’t atween the Tweed an Tees. Alang wiv its autonomous liberties sic as Durham an Tynedale, aa the lands atween the twe rivers wes consithered a single Yarldom bi the Anglo-Saxon Kings ov Ingland. The Yarldom wes lyeter formed intiv a royal coonty follaïn the Norman invasion.
