The original English language is known as Old English, and came from the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Northern Germany, who invaded and settled in England in the fifth century A.D. Over time, their language evolved into Middle English, which is the form of English spoken during the medieval period. English from this period has both Germanic and Romance influences.
After the Norman Conquest in 1066, Old French had a huge influence on English language development, resulting in the creation of a new language known as Middle English. English continued to evolve through the Renaissance, when it became the language of literature and science.
