Empire of Aotearoa

The Empire of Aotearoa is another name for the Empire of Australia.

Aotearoa refers to the islands on which the Empire of Australia has its capital and which is the seat of its power.

There is a movement in the Empire to rename itself the Empire of Aotearoa, as some believe this more properly honours the Empire and since calling itself the Empire of Australia is technically a misnomer based on Eleanor of Aquitaine’s mistaken belief that she had landed in Australia instead of Aotearoa.

Others believe that it is a moot point since the political entity of the Empire of Australia controls both the islands of Australia and Aotearoa.
