Look up Egbert of Wessex (also spelled Ecgberht or Ecgbryh), sometimes known as Egbert the Saxon. He's known as the first King of all England because he was the first to conquer a majority of the island at one time. He led his Saxon army to victories over Sussex, Kent, Mercia, and Surrey becomeing the ruler over those kingdoms as he went. He was the first to be known as Bretwalda or ruler of all Britain.
Some believe it to be William the Conqueror but the Anglo Saxons held the island for over 200 years before the Normans came along. The Romans held it for 400 years before that and before that it wasn't really a kingdom but an island of different tribal kingdoms much like America was before it was conquered.
