King Philip’s War was fought between 1675 and 1678 in New England, English America. Of which nation was King Philip from?

Answer: None. Arguably, no King Philip even existed. The war was a conflict between Native Americans and English colonists. ‘King Philip’ is the name given to the leader of the Wampanoag Indians by the English. The individual they were likely referring to was called Metacomet.
