Definition of Iceland in English:
First settled by Norse colonists in the 9th century, Iceland was under Norwegian rule from 1262 to 1380, when it passed to Denmark. Granted internal self-government in 1874, it became a fully fledged independent republic in 1944. In 2010, volcanic eruptions in Eyjafjalljökull, an ice cap in southern Iceland, caused major disruptions of air travel across much of Europe
