One unique vision ! Two very different results !!

In 1629, King Charles I of England "erected into a province" all the land from the Albemarle Sound
in the north to the St. John's River in the south, which he directed should be named Carolana.

Carolana is from the word Carolus, the Latin form of Charles, and the name he personally selected for his new colony. 

Carolina is the name King Charles II used in 1663 to finally implement his father's original vision of 1629.
