North Maluku

This is a complex region; the map linked below may help one to understand it. Used to illustrate the Wikipedia article on the Maluku Islands, it depicts the former Indonesian province of Maluku, which was split in 1999 into North Maluku and Maluku. It was also of very great interest to the Europeans in the 17th and 18th centuries.
