Norwegian Antarctic claim

Norway has three dependent Antarctic territories, two of which are located south of 60°S latitude and therefore falling within the Antarctic Treaty. These include Queen Maud Land (a sector of Antarctica which spans between 20° west and 45° east, formally claimed on 14 January 1938) and Peter I Island (formally claimed in 1931), a territory also claimed by Westarctica in 2005 and declared the nation's capital.

Norway's claim on Queen Maud Land includes the entirety of the cartographic area called New Swabia, a sector marked out by Nazi Germany between 1939 and 1945 but never formally claimed.
