Other islands have been divided by international borders in the past but they are now unified.
The definite borders of modern
nation-states do not apply in other forms of societal organisation, where "divided" islands may consequently be less noteworthy. For example, in Ancient Greece, the island of Euboea was divided among several city states, including Chalcis and Eretria; and before its settlement by Europeans, the Island of Tasmania was divided among nine indigenous tribes.
Islands in wartime may be divided between an invading and defending power, as with
Crete in 1645–69 between the Ottoman Empire and the Republic of Venice.
Examples of formerly divided islands include:
Corsica – was divided between the Republic of Pisa and the Republic of Genoa by a ruling by Pope Innocent II in 1132, and it remained so until the Battle of Meloria of 1284. Then Corsica successively became part of Genoa, Aragon, Genoa again, the Corsican Republic, France, Anglo-Corsican Kingdom, and France again, where it remains as of 2013. Sardinia – was divided into indigenous giudicati since before the year 900 through the extinction of the Giudicato of Arborea in 1420. Since then, Sardina has successively has been part of Aragon, the Spanish Empire, Piedmont-Sardinia, the Kingdom of Italy, and the Republic of Italy. Saaremaa (1237–1570) and Hiiumaa (1254–1563) – Divided between the Livonian Order and the Bishopric of Ösel-Wiek (the Kingdom of Denmark after 1560). Thereafter these were part of Denmark (Saaremaa only), the Kingdom of Sweden, Imperial Russia, Estonia, the U.S.S.R., Nazi Germany (1941–44), the U.S.S.R. again, and finally Estonia after the dissolution of the U.S.S.R. in 1991. Tobago – from 1654 through 1659, this island had colonies from both the Duchy of Courland and Semigallia and the Dutch Republic. Both of these colonies failed economically and were abandoned. Later, Tobago became part of the [75 ] French Empire, then the Kingdom of Great Britain (1706), the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, the present United Kingdom, and the independent country of Trinidad and Tobago. Ternate – divided between the Spanish Empire allied with Tidore, and the Dutch Republic allied with the Sultan of Ternate from 1607 through 1663. Later, Ternate has successive been owned by the Netherlands, the Japanese Empire (1942–45), Netherlands again, and the independent country of Indonesia, beginning in 1949. Long Island, New York – divided between the Dutch Republic and the Kingdom of England beginning in 1640 ( , by the founding of the de facto Southold), or in 1650 ( , by the de jure Treaty of Hartford), through to the surrender of New Netherland to the British Army in 1664. Thereafter, Long Island has been owned by Kingdom of England, the United Kingdom, and the United States from 1781 through the present. Long Island has been part of the State of New York since 1781, and it is the largest island in the Contiguous United States (48 states). Great Britain – Earlier divided into three or more kingdoms, including England, Wales, and Scotland, and sometimes ruled in part by the Roman Empire and the Danish Empire. These parts were reduced to just two before 1707, when the Kingdom of England and the Kingdom of Scotland enacted the Acts of Union of 1707, establishing just one monarchy and one parliament. Since 1707, England, Scotland, and Wales have been part of (successively) the Kingdom of Great Britain, the Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and the Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, often called the United Kingdom for short. Newfoundland Island – Earlier divided between Great Britain and the French Empire until the enactment of the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713. Following this treaty, Newfoundland was part of the British Empire. Then it became the partially independent Dominion of Newfoundland, which next became a Province of Canada in 1949. Saint Kitts – Divided between Great Britain and the French Empire from 1626 through the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713. Then it became part of the British Empire for about 250 years, and finally part of the independent country of Saint Kitts and Nevis. At various times of war in the Caribbean Sea, either France or Great Britain occupied all of Saint Kitts both before and after 1713. Elba – divided from 1548 through 1802. Portoferraio belonged to the Duke of Florence (later the Grand Duchy of Tuscany) from 1548 until this was ceded to France in 1802 under the Treaty of Amiens. Porto Longone belonged to the State of Presidi, a client of first the Spanish Empire and then the Kingdom of Naples, from 1557 until ceded to France in 1801 by the Treaty of Florence. The rest of this island belonged to the Principality of Piombino until conquered by the French Empire, and then in 1802 Napoleon made Elba into the Kingdom of Etruria. This island was successively part of the French Empire, the Principality of Piombino under Elisa Baciocchi, under the sovereignty of Napoleon – by the terms of the Treaty of Fontainebleau (1814), part of Tuscany again, part of the Kingdom of Italy, Italian Social Republic (1943–44), and finally part of the Republic of Italy. [76 ] [77 ] Efate – Divided for several months during 1889 between Franceville and the New Hebrides, then under an Anglo-French joint naval commission. Sakhalin Island – Divided between the Russian Empire, then the U.S.S.R., and the Japanese Empire along the 50th parallel north by the terms of the Treaty of Portsmouth of 1905 through the final Surrender of the Japanese Empire in 1945. Henceforth, all of Sakhalin became part of the U.S.S.R., and then the Russian Federation, de facto. The Japanese Empire still considers the ownership of Sakhalin to be undetermined, and Sakhalin is shown on many Japanese maps as a " no man's land". Killiniq Island – divided between Canada and the Colony of Newfoundland and then the Dominion of Newfoundland beginning with the Founding of Canada in 1867 through 1949 with the addition of Newfoundland to Canada. Ankoko Island in the Cuyuni River on the border between Venezuela and British Guiana (now Guyana). Zhongshan Dao in the Pearl River Delta was divided between China and Macau from ratification of the Treaty of Tientsin in 1862 through the final return of Macao to China in the year 1999.
A few former islands have disappeared because of changes in water levels:
Subnational divided islands [edit ]
There are islands that lie across different provinces or states of the same country. An example would be
Killiniq Island of Canada, which is divided between Newfoundland and Labrador and Nunavut, whereas Melville Island and Victoria Island are divided between Nunavut and the Northwest Territories. In Australia, the Boundary Islet is divided between Tasmania and Victoria. Assateague Island, a barrier island on the Atlantic coast of the United States, is divided between the states of Maryland and Virginia, and Fenwick Island, immediately to the north, is divided between Maryland and Delaware. Ellis Island, itself in the United States state of New Jersey, contains a true exclave of the state of New York; elsewhere in New York Harbor, the northern tip of Shooters Island, otherwise in New York, is in New Jersey. Zhongshan Dao, in the People's Republic of China, is divided between Guangdong Province and the Special Administrative Region of Macau.
The island of
Ceylon ( Sri Lanka) has also two nationalities – Sinhalese and Tamils. Tamils live in the North and Eastern Provinces, whereas Sinhala people live in other provinces. Tamils call their place Eelam. The island is naturally divided when mapped by language, religion and ethnicity race. See also [edit ] References [edit ] ^ a b c d e f g h i "Islands by land area". .
