James Cook named the Cook Islands, having visited in 1773 and 1777 - but he named them the Hervey Islands! It wasn't until 1820 that they were referred to as the Cook Islands in his honour.

There are fifteen islands in total, and most of the population live on Rarotonga, where there is an airport.

The Cook Islands became a British protectorate in 1888 and were annexed by New Zealand in 1901. The islands are now self governing, in "free association" with New Zealand.
