The history of the Kingdom of Araucania and Patagonia is immensely fascinating. People from around the globe, people with widely varying interests, long have been attracted to this story, curious to learn more. The fact that you are reading this page is a sign that you are one of those inquisitive people.
Founded in 1995, the North American Araucanian Royalist Society (NAARS) is the world's leading source of reliable, objective, English-language information about the history of the Kingdom of Araucania and Patagonia and the current operations of the Royal House of Araucania and Patagonia. While there are other groups interested in the kingdom, some groups have an ideological ax to grind and others have old scores to settle.
In contrast, the NAARS prides itself on being independent and nonpartisan. We gather all manner of information about the Kingdom of Araucania and Patagonia and the Royal House of Araucania and Patagonia. Much of this information comes from difficult-to-locate historical resources in a variety of languages. Other information comes from regular contact with key members of the Royal House of Araucania and Patagonia. And some information even comes from sworn enemies of the Kingdom and the Royal House.
Having gathered this wide range of information, the NAARS then translates documents into English and makes them available through its 1) archive, 2) website, and 3) journal. Regarding matters which are controversial or contested, we simple publish the best information we have and allow our discerning readers to draw their own conclusions.
