The Commonwealth of Patagonia, commonly referred to as Patagonia, is a nation located in the southern most point of South America. It shares its only land border with Argentina and Chile to the north.
Patagonia was established as a colony of the United Kingdom in 1860 by Welsh colonists led by Welsh Nationalist Michael D. Jones. The colony would quickly expand inland into what had been Argentine territory. While the British had not officially claimed the territory that the settlers were moving into, the Argentine government became increasingly angry about foreigners "colonizing" land that was rightfully Argentine. The situation intensified when more settlers (more English than Welsh) began to immigrate to the region and establish more settlements in the region.
