Angles (German: Angeln) were one of the Germanic peoples who migrated from continental Germany to Brittania. That land was later called Angelland, thus England. Thanks to the major influence of the Angles, the people of England are also known as Anglo-Saxons and regions of the United Kingdom are known by names such as [East Anglia]?.

A part of the Jutland Peninsula where the Angles originated is still called Angeln today. It is in the Bundesrepublik of Germany, Bundesland Schleswig-Holstein.
