Îles du Connétable
|This article does not cite any sources. (November 2006)|
The Îles du Connétable (Constable Islands) are two islands within French Guiana (Grand Connétable and Petit Connétable) that were claimed under the Guano Islands Act of 1856 for the United States of America.
The word "Connétable" is a deformation of the Dutch word "constapel", which means gunner in Dutch.
