About Norgan Nurdžbrogh is a descendant of Old English, spoken in Eastern England, the Netherlands, Denmark, and northern Germany.

During the year 865, vikings left their northern homelands due to crop failure and political instability, and entered East Anglia. Four kingdoms ruled the land of Anglia at the time, and three were conquered easily. The fourth, Wessex, managed to repel the vikings and throw wrenches into their plans. The king of Wessex, Alfred, and the king of the viking armies, Guthrum, came to blows many times in the upcoming years. Alfred eventually won out, but only just so. Guthrum and Alfred, in their combat, gained a respect for each-other, and after the fighting, when Guthrum agreed to go back to the other conquered lands in East Anglia, the two became allies.

The viking kingdom in East Anglia only lasted around a century in our timeline, but in this alternate history, the country(Nurdsinn) and its royal family lasts well into the present day. The ties between the royal families of East Anglia and the old viking lands of Denmark and the surrounding regions allowed the Nurdsinnic to spread into Denmark, Northern Germany, and the Netherlands, spreading Nurdžbrogh with them. This whole situation was very similar to England's ownership of Scotland.

The Nurdsinnic eventually lost their lands in Europe and were pushed back to their original homes in Nurdsinn, next to England. Around the mid-nineteenth century, England swallowed up Nurdsinn. By the twenty-first century, political boundaries are practically identical, but many people in the old Nurdsinnic regions still call themselves Nurdsinnic and speak this language.

Some minor creoles were formed from German and Nordžbrogh and English and Nordžbrogh in their respective regions of Northern Germany and Eastern England.
