The town of Annapolis Royal in Nova Scotia was settled by the French in 1605 and was named 'Port Royal'. In the early 18th century the fortification here was captured by British forces who renamed the town Annapolis in honour of Queen Anne, the 'Royal' was offically added later in 1903 after it came into local use. Annopolis Royal was of great importance being the first permanent European settlement in North America and the admininstrative centre for both the French and British regimes.
