Not to be confused either with England, or with the UnitedKingdom. The word 'Great' refers to the size in contrast to 'Little Britain' - modern day Brittany, in France. Useless piece of trivia of the day - the island of GreatBritain is the world's 7th largest island. Although how one distinguishes an island from a continent in this definition I am unsure.
