Oldest Parliament

In the Red Corner, we have Iceland whose "Althing" was founded in 930

and in the Blue, we have the Isle of Man whose Tynwald was created 49 years later but, unlike, the Althing, has remained in continuous existence ever since. (The Althing took a break for a period of 43 years between 1800 and 1843.)

Now, don't you feel better for knowing that?
