The Republic of San Marino is believed to have the oldest surviving Constitution in the world. However, instead of being a single document, the Constitution of San Marino is comprised by a series of six books written in Latin, collectively referred to as the "Statutes of 1600". These came into effect on the 8th of October, 1600.

Sweden's switch from elective to hereditary monarchy in 1544 gave reason to Sweden's first law of constitutionalcharacter, in form of a treaty between the royal dynasty and the realm represented by the four Estates to be valid for all times.............then

............The first constitutional Instrument of Government was enacted in 1719, marking the transition from autocracy to parliamentarism.

    Thats is what makes the UK great, they adapt and evolve as time goes on

    The United Kingdom does not have one specific constitutional document named as such. Instead, the so-called constitution of the United Kingdom, or British constitution, is a sum of laws and principles that make up the country's body politic. This is sometimes referred to as an "unwritten" or uncodified constitution.
