From Kook Science

Prince Rupert's Land, oft simply Rupert's Land (or, among the French, as Terre de Rupert), so-named for Prince Rupert of the Rhine, nephew of Charles I and the first Governor of the Hudson's Bay Company, was a vast territory claimed as part of British North America, comprising all of the lands whose waters drain into the Hudson Bay, granted as a commercial monopoly to the HBC from 1670 to 1870. Thusly, the jurisdiction of the Company variously included what eventually became the southern lands of Nunavut, northern lands of Ontario and Quebec, the entirety of Manitoba, as well as the majority of Saskatchewan, and the southern lands of Alberta.
