Prince Charles Island
Prince Charles Island is a large, low-lying island with an area of 9,508 km², located in Foxe Basin, off the west coast of Baffin Island, in the Baffin Region of Nunavut, Canada. Despite its size, it was only discovered and charted in 1948, though it was likely known to the local Inuit long before that. The island was named for Prince Charles, who was born the same year that it was discovered.
