God Save the King

"God Save the King" (also called "God Save the Queen", during the reign of a female monarch) is the royal anthem in a number of Commonwealth realms, their territories, the British Crown dependencies, as well as many other micronations currently or formerly. The composer John Bull is sometimes credited for its composition, however some sources state it is from an unknown author, perhaps with origin in plainchant.
