Wales - Wales
Wales is a European nation and one of the four nations of the United Kingdom. Wales is located in the south-west of Great Britain and is bordered by ► England (Lloegr) to the east, the Bristol Channel (Môr Hafren) to the south and the Irish Sea (Môr Iwerddon) to the west and north, and also by the estuary of the River Dee (Afon Dyfrdwy) in the north-east.
Mae Cymru yn wlad Geltaidd ac yn un o'r tair gwlad (gyda'r Alban a Lloegr) a'r un dalaith (Gogledd Iwerddon) sy'n ffurfio'r Deyrnas Unedig. Lleolir y wlad yn ne-orllewin Prydain Fawr yn ffinio â Lloegr i'r dwyrain, Môr Hafren a Môr Iwerydd i'r gogledd a'r gorllewin, a Glannau Dyfrdwy i'r gogledd-ddwyrain.

Every entry has an introduction section in English. If other languages are native and/or official in an entity, introductions in other languages are added in separate sections.

Historical maps are included in the continent, country and dependency entries.
The status of various entities is disputed. See the content for the entities concerned.
The maps of former countries that are more or less continued by a present-day country or had a territory included in only one or two countries are included in the atlas of the present-day country. For example the Ottoman Empire can be found in the Atlas of Turkey.
