The town was named after Maria Alexandrovna, the Empress consort of Alexander II of Russia. Mariehamn was founded in 1861, around the village of Ã–vernÃ¤s, in what was at the time part of the municipality of Jomala. (Wikipedia)

In the Middle Ages, the Crusades passed by Ã…land. At that time, the island state was right in the middle of the Scandinavian artery, a sailing channel that these days is called the Valdemar Fairway. The motorway of the times was mentioned in writing in Latin in the 1200s. The fairway runs from Arholma to Ã…land and the Finnish archipelago. A number of traces of medieval times have been preserved in Ã…land. www.visitaland.com
