Jersey, an island between England and France, full of history.
The Jersey Island is a crown dependency of the united kingdom but does not belong to it.
Jersey was part of the Duchy of Normandy, whose dukes went on to become kings of England from 1066. After Normandy was lost by the kings of England in the 13th century, and the ducal title surrendered to France, Jersey and the other Channel Islands remained attached to the English crown.
Jersey is a self-governing parliamentary democracy under a constitutional monarchy, with its own financial, legal and judicial systems, and the power of self-determination. The Lieutenant Governor on the island is the personal representative of the Queen.
During World War 2, the island was direly bombed by the German who settled and forced about 10 000 people to leave their island.
Nowadays, on the channel island of jersey, you can count about 99 500 inhabitants for 118,2 km² area. The culture was influenced by the shared history between England and France.
