Dronning Maud Land

Redirected from Queen Maud Land

Dronning Maud Land (or Queen Maud Land) is the part of Antarctica lying between 20°W and 45°E. This territory was claimed by Norway on January 14, 1939, but this claim, like others in the Antarctic, is not universally recognised.

Dronning Maud Land was named by Roald Amundsen in honour of Queen Maud of Norway.
