The Kingdom of Yorkshire, or Yorkshire is a constitutional monarchy situated on Great Britain in Europe. It consists of three provinces, North Yorkshire, West Yorkshire and South Yorkshire in addition to several territories in Humberside and Heligoland. It shares a border with Britain and the North Sea. The capital city of Yorkshire is York, whilst the largest city is Leeds.
Following the end of the War of the Roses in 1487, Yorkshire became independent from the Kingdom of England as a result of a large rebellion. Near the end of the 17th century, there was a civil war between royalists and republicans. In the early 18th century, a failed revolution also occurred.
Yorkshire is a member of a wide range of organisations. It is a full member of the League of Nations, NATO, World Trade Organization, European Free Trade Association and the OECD. It has very strong relations with neighbouring Britain and France.
Rugby league is the national sport of Yorkshire, however association football is more popular. Six rugby league teams from Yorkshire play in the Super League including the Leeds Rhinos, Bradford Bulls, Huddersfield Giants, Wakefield Trinity Wildcats, Castleford Tigers and the York City Knights. Four association football teams from Yorkshire play in the Premier League including Leeds United, Sheffield United, Middlesbrough F.C. and Bradford City. The Tour de Yorkshire, a cycling tour, is also held in Yorkshire.
