The Kingdom was inspired heavily by the former British colonies of North America, especially the colony of New Albion. Due to the location of the Commonwealth in the eastern portions of the continent, the name "Alatonia" was derived from the word for "to the east", or "ʔáala-to" (the word for east with the allative case marker), in the Coast Miwok language of California, the tribe closest to where the original New Albion was located.
The Kingdom of New Cambria was founded on the 9th of March, 2020, by Andrew West and Archibald Sinclair, two citizens and politicians from the Principality of Caudonia, who decided to form a new monarchist micronation based around ideas of democracy, liberalism, and community. The Commonwealth naturally formed close ties with Daragonia, a micronation founded by two fellow Caudonians at around the same time as New Cambria.
