British Nationality Law


British Nationality Law originates from medieval England. There has always been a distinction in English Law between the subjects of the King or Queen and aliens: the monarch’s subjects owed him or her allegiance and included those born in his dominions. The natural-born subjects and those who gave the Monarch their allegiance later, are known as Naturalised subjects or DENZIENS who thereby obtained certain rights otherwise only normally enjoyed by the King’s or Queen’s subjects, including the right to hold land. Natural-born subjects were originally those born within the dominion of the crown.
