British Israelism (also called Anglo-Israelism) is the belief that people of Western European descent, particularly those in Great Britain, are the direct lineal descendants of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. The concept often includes the belief that the British Royal Family is directly descended from the line of King David.[1][2] There has never been a single head or an organisational structure to the movement. Adherents may hold a diverse set of beliefs and claims that are ancillary to the core genealogical theory.

Many believe the central tenets of British Israelism contradict modern genetic, linguistic, archeological and historical evidence. They are considered by some without scientific credibility.[3][4] The concept and theory details have been thoroughly criticized.
