We construct the nonlinear realisation of the semi-direct product of E11 and its vector representation in its decomposition into the subalgebra GL(7) SL(5) to nd a seven-dimensional theory. The resulting equations of motion essentially follow from the Dynkin diagram of E11 and if one restricts them to contain only the usual elds of supergravity and the derivatives with respect to the usual coordinates of space{time then these are the equations of motion of seven-dimensional supergravity.
