The Isla Rino Province (Spanish for Rino Island) is the smallest of the territorial divisions of Rino Island. It corresponds to the territory originally claimed by the micronation in 2009: the islands of Rino (Davis Land) and de los Patos (Ninachumbi). Administratively, both islands form a province, which in theory can have a governor. However, and for practical reasons, the President of the Republic of Rino Island holds this position.
Isla Rino (Rino Island)
Rino Island, Davis Island or more commonly Davis Island or Davis Land was sighted by the English filibuster Edward Davis in 1687 between 30-40 degrees south latitude. When he saw it from the deck of his ship, the Bachelor's Delight (singles' delight), coming from the Galapagos Islands, seemed to him a great group of islands or a true continent, perhaps the Terra Australis Incognita foreseen and sought in the middle of the Pacific . It is not understood why Davis did not address her. Identified with the so-called island of Ahuachumbi and Ninachumbi, mentioned in the stories of the trip of Tupac Yupanqui to Polynesia.
Some have wanted to point out that Davis Land is the same Easter Island discovered by Roggeween thirty-five years later; However, the distance between the two and the vast difference indicate that they were different. Even Roggeween ruled out that Rapa Nui was the same island as Davis.
It is no longer marked on maps, not even as a danger or doubtful point. Its current name was given by the Declaration of independence of the Republic of Rino Island.
Isla de los Patos (Ducks Island)
Identified with the so-called island of Ninachumbi, mentioned in the stories of Tupac Yupanqui's trip to Polynesia. It has not been seen subsequently. From the account of Edward Davis's voyage, it seems that this is where his notion of a group of islands corresponds; therefore it would have rediscovered the islands of Ahuachumbi and Ninachumbi. Its current name was given by President Vittorio Rino.
