"God Save the King" (alternatively "God Save the Queen", depending on the gender of the reigning monarch) is the royal anthem in a number of Commonwealth realms, their territories, and the British Crown dependencies, as well as some micronations. The author of the tune is unknown, and it may originate in plainchant; but an attribution to the composer John Bull is sometimes made.
