Setelah proklamasi kemerdekaan, Kepulauan Riau masuk ke dalam wilayah Kesultanan Siak di daratan Sumatra. Hal ini dilakukan karena gerakan Ganyang Malaysia sehingga mempermudah hubungan dari wilayah kepulauan ke daratan Sumatra.

Lama-kelamaan nama Riau digunakan oleh wilayah Kesultanan Siak di daratan Sumatra, sementara Kepulauan Riau memekarkan diri menjadi wilayah mandiri. Kata kepulauan ditambahkan didepan kata Riau karena wilayahnya berbentuk kepulauan.

Nama Riau pernah menuai polemik di kalangan budayawan Riau dan Kepulauan Riau. Masing-masing menilai bahwa nama Riau berasal dari provinsinya dengan versi sejarah yang berbeda.

Geografi

Secara geografis Kepulauan Riau berbatasan dengan Singapura, Malaysia, dan Vietnam yang memiliki luas wilayah 251.810,71 km² dengan 96% perairan dengan 1.350 pulau besar, dan kecil telah menunjukkan kemajuan dalam penyelenggaraan kegiatan pemerintahan, pembangunan, dan kemasyarakatan.

Ibu kota provinsi ini berada di Tanjungpinang. Letaknya di jalur lalu lintas transportasi laut, dan udara yang strategis, dan terpadat pada tingkat internasional serta pada pasar dunia yang memiliki peluang pasar.

Titik tertinggi Kepulauan Riau adalah Gunung Daik dengan ketinggian 1.165 mdpl yang terdapat di pulau Lingga.

Kepulauan Riau merupakan hasil pemekaran dari provinsi Riau berdasarkan Undang-undang Nomor 25 tahun 2002 merupakan provinsi ke-32 di Indonesia yang mencakup Kota Tanjungpinang, Kota Batam, Kabupaten Bintan, Kabupaten Karimun, Kabupaten Natuna, Kabupaten Kepulauan Anambas dan Kabupaten Lingga.

Sejarah

Dilansir dari Wikipedia, sejarah Kepulauan Riau dimulai dengan ditemukannya Prasasti Pasir Panjang di Karimun yang terdapat semboyan pemujaan melalui tapak kaki Buddha. Hal ini diduga berhubungan dengan Kerajaan Melayu di Sumatra. Buddha diperkiran masuk melalui pedagang dari Tiongkok dan India.

Masa Islam di Kepulauan Riau berkembang dengan berdirinya Kesultanan Riau-Lingga. Kesultanan ini berasaskan Melayu Islam dan Islam sendiri dikenal setelah dibawa oleh pedagang dari Gujarat, India, dan Arab.

Masa Kolonial sangat berpengaruh dalam sejarah Kepulauan Riau. Julukan Hawaii Van Lingga yang diberikan kepada pulau Penuba, penggunaan uang tersendiri bagi Kepulauan Riau, dan terbentuknya Karesidenan Riouw menjadi bukti pengaruh kuat para kolonial di Kepulauan Riau.

Setelah masa kemerdekaan, Kepulauan Riau bergabung dengan wilayah Kesultanan Siak di daratan Sumatra sehingga membentuk provinsi Riau. Dahulunya, Kepulauan Riau juga menggunakan mata uang tersendiri bernama Uang Kepulauan Riau (KR). Namun secara perlahan, penggunaan mata uang ini dihentikan dan digantikan dengan mata uang Rupiah.

Setelah lama bergabung dengan Riau, Kepulauan Riau akhirnya memutuskan untuk memisahkan diri dengan membentuk Badan Perjuangan Pembentukan Provinsi Kepulauan Riau (BP3KR). Perjuangan BP3KR akhirnya membuahkan hasil dengan pemekaran provinsi Kepulauan Riau dari Riau pada tanggal 24 September 2002.
