Andrew Adonis, on Twitter, has challenged us to name three people as founders of England. I thought that’s a good game. Who would I choose?

I’m writing about the founders & refounders of nations and their unique imprint — Mandela, Washington, Adenauer, Lee Kuan Yew, de Gaulle, Makarios … This is obviously problematic for England! Who would you say are the top 3 founders of modern England?
