The Isle of Man ( _gv. Ellan Vannin, pronounced|ˈɛlʲən ˈvanɪn) or Mannin ( _gv. Mannin, IPA| [ˈmanɪn] ) is a self-governing Crown dependency, located in the Irish Sea at the geographical centre of the British Isles.The head of state is Queen Elizabeth II, who holds the title of Lord of Mann. The Crown is represented by a Lieutenant Governor. The island is not part of the United Kingdom, but external relations, defence, and ultimate good-governance of the Isle of Man are the responsibility of the government of the United Kingdom.

The island was a Celtic community which came under the rule of the Norse in 1079. This has left a legacy from the Tynwald government to many place names. After a period of alternating rule by the Kings of England and Scotland, the Manx came under the feudal overlordship of the English Crown. The lordship revested to the British Crown in 1764 but the island never became part of the United Kingdom. This accounts for its current position as a Crown dependency.

The Isle of Man is not a part of the European Union, but because of Protocol 3 of the Treaty of Accession in 1972, there does exist the free movement of goods between the two entities. [ {http://www.isle-of-man.com/generalinformation/constitution&legal.shtml] the Isle of Man website]
