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.
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.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?
