The Commonwealth: End of an Empire
The commonwealth's history stems back to the long reining days of the British empire. An empire on which the sun would never set. Now a symbol of peace and prosperity, the Commonwealth has provided a sense of belonging for those involved. The commonwealth is an echo of Britain's once glorious empire. Established in 1931 and once a union of 8, it has erupted into a strong bond between 56 member nations.
