History

This article, or section of an article, is very short. You can help PhantomWiki by expanding it.  


Behind the scenes

Carpatia first appeared in an edited version of the 1973 daily story "The Things", published in Fantomen 4/1974. This story was originally set in Koqania, which was renamed in the edited version. Carpatia and Koqania have since developed separate characteristics and are not presented as the same country in Team Fantomen stories.

The name appears to be inspired by The Carpathian Mountains, which is called Karpaterna in Swedish. This could explain why the country was called Carpatia and not Carpathia.

Carpathia (note the spelling) has been used as a fictional Balkan kingdom in the films "The Prince and the Showgirl" (1957), "Ghostbusters II" (1989), and "Dragon Storm" (2004), as well as season 1, episode 14 (1978) of the television show "Fantasy Island".
