Nathaniel Poole Rupert (Count Palatine of the Rhine, Duke of Bavaria, 1st Duke of Cumberland, 1st Earl of Holderness) was was a nephew of King Charles I, and the first Governor of the Hudson's Bay Company. Rupert's Land was named in his honour. A very interesting character. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_R...
