The Carolinas were named for King Charles I of England. Originally a single proprietary colony, the Carolinas fell into a period of dissension, partly from neglect from the heirs of the original Lords Proprietors. Beginning around 1710, the settlements in North and South Carolina could not agree upon a common government and so practically they became separate colonies. The Yamasee War of 1715-1717 convinced the South Carolinians of the necessity of ending proprietary rule. By 1720 the process was officially begun, taking nine years to finish. In 1729, the two Carolinas were formally established as separate royal colonies after seven of the eight Lords Proprietors sold their shares back to the crown.
