Ellan Vannin (aka Isle of Man) lies in the Sea of Mann (Irish Sea nowadays). A culture rich and proud of it's Gaelic and Viking heritage.  It’s known for its rugged coastline, medieval castles and rural landscape, rising to a mountainous center.  Famous for the world's most dangerous motorcycle race, the greatest race on earth, The Isle of Man TT.
Since viking times the Manx ruled the Sea of Man.  Ellan Vannin was defeated in the Gaelic-English wars. A possession of the English Crown ever since, Queen Elizabeth holds the Title 'Lord of Mann'.  Isle of Man is not part of the UK. Unlike Scotland, Wales & Ulster the Manx refuse to this day to bend the knee to the English Crown.
