History

1496 landed Bernard Van Pelt at Collina Island (formerly New Leyden). He founded the colony of New Holland with the capital New Amsterdam (now Van Pelt City). After some times this colony reaches from New Dublin til Pugall at the whole eastcoast of Latina and included the province of "Rio Liffey", what now is Tara. In this area many irish people have settled there.

1777 the colony of New Holland declare her independence from the "motherland" by the occasion, that there were social struggles. The provinces Rio Liffey, Holland and Valle Vulpeculo (with many latinian settlers) founded the "Republic of Southland" with the city of "Van Pelt" (formerly New Amsterdam) as capital. The province of Monte Golario was taken over from troops of Latina.

In the summer of 1799 the war of independence in Latina begun. The colony of New Holland send troops over the mountains from Tara too and at sea to help the fighting latinian people. This war ended 1918 and Tara was independent like the other provinces of Latina and New Holland. 1824 both colonies (Latina and New Holland) they united to the independent land "Latina" to be stronger together against the old "motherlands". From this reason the provinces at the eastcoast (Tara, Holland, Valle Vulpeculo, Grimoualdini and Monte Golario) have a little other touch as the greater part of Latina.

Long years Tara was a part of Latina - but ever in the "poor" northeastern edge. So came one to the other and some religious differences with the Gouvernement in Latina makes the rest. At the end the province of Tara 2001 become an independent country and is now no more a part of Latina.
