The Fraternity Rotalia was established in St Petersburg in 1913 by 10 Estonian students. After Estonia was occupied during World War II and fraternities were banned, Rotalia, like other Estonian student organizations, continued its existence in exile by the members who fled to the West. The Fraternity Rotalia was incorporated in the US in 1956.
