The Carolinas were known as the Province of Carolina during America's early colonial period, from 1663 to 1710.
The Province of Carolina was an English and later a British colony of North America.
Prior to that, the land was considered part of the Colony and Dominion of Virginia, from 1609 to 1663.
The province, named Carolina to honor King Charles I of England, was divided into two colonies in 1729, although the actual date is the subject of debate.
Charles I was monarch of the three kingdoms of England, Scotland, and Ireland from 27 March 1625 until his execution in 1649.
