Religiously, South Carolina does not affiliate itself with any specific religion, creating a very tolerant space for people with all types of beliefs. Originally governed under proprietary rule (where a council of powerful englishmen elected leaders), South Carolina has more recently been named a royal colony, appointed a royal governor, and identified as a separate colony from that of North Carolina, as the two were previously joined. Key historical events in South Carolina include the attempted religious oppression by the Anglicans, various conflicts with native american tribes, and ongoing conflicts with the Spanish and French who were also trying to acquire land in North America. Important people in the history of South Carolina include Anthony Ashley Cooper, the most involved of the eight men who founded the colony, William Sayle, who established the first permanent Carolinian colony, and John Locke who helped to write the colonial constitution.
