Pre-Reformation English rebelliousness?
#2
Seems like pre-Reformation England was an interesting mix of both northern and southern European influences. Countries far from Rome like Denmark and Iceland were a lost cause by the time of the Reformation, but England could have swung either way.... and it did, as the tumultuous reigns of the Tudor monarchs show.

Ireland is an interesting exception, given that it was very far from Rome yet stayed loyal. I wonder if it was purely out of piety, or if a large part of it had to do with the fact that adhering to Rome made them un-English.
