Adélie was a French territory on Antarctica, encompassing the former Russian Viceroyalty of Yekaterinia. It was established after France claimed the Viceroyalty during the Russian Civil War, and governed by the French military until the Vichy government granted it independence as the Republic of Yekaterinia during World War II. Less than 3 weeks after gaining independence, the new governing body annexed the territory to Bellinsgauzenia.
