Jersey officially the Bailiwick of Jersey is an island and self-governing Crown Dependency near the coast of north-west France. It is the largest of the Channel Islands and is 22 kilometres (14 mi) from the Cotentin Peninsula in Normandy. The Bailiwick consists of the main island of Jersey and some surrounding uninhabited islands and rocks including Les Dirouilles,Les Écréhous,Les Minquiers and Les Pierres de Lecq

Jersey was part of the Duchy of Normandy, whose dukes became kings of England from 1066. After Normandy was lost by the kings of England in the 13th century, and the ducal title surrendered to France, Jersey remained loyal to the English Crown, though it never became part of the Kingdom of England.

Jersey is a self-governing parliamentary democracy under a constitutional monarchy, with its own financial, legal and judicial systems, and the power of self-determination The island has a separate relationship with the Crown than the other Crown Dependencies and the Lieutenant Governor represents the Queen there.

The island has a strong Norman-French culture, such as its ancient Norman language Jèrriais and place names with French or Norman origins and has close cultural links with its neighbouring islands in the Bailiwick of Guernsey.
