The Minor Royal city of Apollo is a city in the Emileville metropolitan area in Rupertland's Île-Urbaine. The city has been the epicentre of post-secondary education in Rupertland since ~650. It is home to two of the world's most prestigious universities: The University of Apollo and the McJanister College. It is also home to the mammoth Emile University in Emileville, the City University Emileville, St. Ninian University, Notre Dame College, Minerva University, and Vista University (Athena's Eight). The city has been known as the founding place of Nomonism (at the McJanister College), and several other historically significant philosophical movements. The city is part of the Emileville Metropolitan Area of over 3,000,000 people, while it itself has a permanent population of 110,000 and a fluxuating student population of roughly 270,000 people, in addition to roughly 225,000 student commuters, mostly in Emileville proper. 

History

The city was first settled in 600 under Henry I's Centennial Plan. The city was intended to become a large educational city, and was planned to become one of the largest cities in Rupertland. In 732, Apollo separated into La Vistaianique (Emileville) and Apollo. Apollo was an English/Latin city, while La Vistaianique was a French city. Of course the majority of the city now known as Emileville is comprised of the Greek towns.
