During the chaos of the mid-10th Century England, a man named Pedr ap Ioan became Earl of Wessex, and harnessed the popular discontent against the crown to get himself elected King of England. His son, Rhirid was elected during what later became known as the Second Great Schism, where the Holy Roman Empire split from the Roman Catholic Church, which led to significant heretical movements spreading across Europe. Two movements especially important in the British Isles, the Translationist Movement, which was an anti-corruption movement which advocated for translating the Bible into the vernacular, and the Povertarians which advocated for a return to priestly vows of poverty. Rhirid began to support the Translationists, and in 1081, Rhirid called for a council of the Kingdom's bishops in Tiwcsbri (Tewkesbury) on the matter of the Great Schism. The Council concluded with the secession of Lloegr from the Roman Catholic Church and the formation of the Insular Church along Translationist lines. The Pope, embroiled in the Italian Revolts, could only offer nominal resistance to the move.

I see the West Riding is on the right side: good.

Why is it still called England/Lloegr if everyone appears to be Welsh-speaking?

There remained a significant English-speaking population at this time, especially in the North and East. Note that Ely is using its Old English name. The Reforms of Ceridwen in 1110 would see Lloegr become The High Kingdom of Prydain. Also it's less Welsh-speaking and more Brythonized English.

The Kingdom of Beornia was founded on the Silver River in 1658 by Northern English immigrants fleeing the prosecution of Protestants in the Dual Monarchy. The Reformed Anglican Church was founded in the 16th Century as part of the Protestant Revolution, spurred on by the Protestant Union of Scandinavia. In 1553, Edouard V passed the Edict of Cantorbéry which established state tolerance of Protestantism as well as the autonomy of both the Irish and English provinces of the Crown.

However, the ascension to the throne of Francois I in 1589 put an end to the trend of autonomy and tolerance of the isles. In order to discourage Burgundian and Scandiavian (Two strong Protestant powers) influence in the region, Francois rescinded the Edict, sparking the Wars of Religion, which ended in 1656. The end result was the outlawing of the Reformed Church of England and the creation of the Saxon Society a secret cabal of Protestant nobles who planned an exodus for the faithful.

The Society and many other English Protestants fled to the region of New Anglia (now called Avalon,) south of the Burgundian colony of Nouvelle Amsterdam at the mouth of the then-named Riviere de l’Argent. The region was nominally claimed by the Anglo-French, but with already many colonies, and wishing to be rid of the Anglicans once and for all, the Crown did not protest the formation of the so-called Kingdom of Beornicia. (Which over time became 'Beornia') John Cavendish, the leader of the Father Pilgrims as they began to be called crowned himself Edward I of England-in-Exile, and founded the House of Beornia.

The kingdom then remained in obscurity for the next 200 years only trading with the Incans and Burgundians to their north and receiving a paltry trickle of immigrants from England. The Beornians slowly pushed north to the Ċācco and west to the Enttīs, and eventually south to Newe Cornweal. The only major conflict not involving the natives was the short-lived War of [New] English succession, where Duke Henry of Godwinson rose up in 1759 against his cousin, the infant king Harold II and his regent, Sir Peter Byrne. Henry was defeated in 1760 and then executed by the loyalists, with Sir Byrne receiving the Duchy of Godwinson as a reward for his loyalty.

During the Lotharingian War of Independence, Arthur IV, the Enlightenment-educated King supported the Burgundian colony against its masters, cementing an alliance that would last until the fall of De Aigle's dictatorship in 1839. Edward IV succeeded his father in 1817, returning from his European Education enamored with Bohemian Absolutism and ended any attempts for the time being to liberalize the nation. Edward IV was overthrown in a palace coup in 1843 after he attempted to tender a declaration of war with the resurgent Incan Empire.

The nation democratized during the reign of Edward IV's successor, Henry II, who also forged an alliance with the Amazonians and the Incans. He also opened immigration to all Europeans, regardless of whether or not they spoke English or were Protestant. Henry II died in 1892 Being succeeded by his Grandson Harold IV who presided over the nation during the Communard Revolution that overthrew the Amerigan Federation to the nation's north in 1915.

It is 1923 and while the world teeters on the Brink of destruction, the Beornian nation stands strong and proud of its heritage. No one knows what the next century will bring, but given how eventful the last century was, it will certainly be interesting...
