The history of Edinburgh can be divided into five segments - the rule of the Celts and Romans, the initial years of the first United Scotland, Edinburgh during the Medieval and Renaissance Age, Edinburgh during the Georgian Era, and the present day capital city. Prior to 211 AD the region was essentially inhabited by the local Celtic people who were constantly in war with the Roman Army. Finally, the Romans took shelter behind Hadrians wall and the entire Scotland including Edinburgh began to grow as an independent region.
By the end of the 9th Century, a united Scotland was born. Almost the entire of the Medieval Era was about the Wars of Independence, but things changed finally in 1707 after the Act of Union. This was the period of "Enlightenment" when numerous streets, architecture, and hotels in Edinburgh burgeoned. Today, Edinburgh is one of the most beautiful capital cities in Europe housing buildings and monuments of historical significance.
