I mean seriously, they were one of the greatest empires of their time and somehow got reduced to just a single island. It doesn’t make sense to me. I understand losing some territories and colonies because of rebellions and revolutions (America for example) but they had SO MUCH land under their control so... how did they lose all of it within the span of like 300 years? ( I understand that a lot can happen in 300 years but still, their empire was huge, how did they lose ALL of it?)

他們是那個時代最偉大的帝國之一,但突然就退化到只剩一個小島。讓我實在難以理解。我知道因為叛亂和革命(比如美國)導致英國丟失了一些領土和殖民地,但他們還控制著這么龐大的領土,所以……他們是怎么在300年里丟光領土的?(我知道300年里可以發生很多事情,但他們的帝國這么龐大,他們是怎么把這一切都丟光的?)
