Historically, Melbourne was founded relatively late for an Australian state capital (1835), by a man named [[AwesomeMcCoolname John Batman]], who wished to call it Batmania. It would soon overtake all the other cities in Australia after the gold rush of the 1850s, bringing great wealth and a swift population increase to the city. Between 1880 and 1900, Melbourne was not merely the largest city in Australia, but in the entire Southern Hemisphere. It was also, at that time, the second largest city in the UsefulNotes/TheBritishEmpire, topped only by {{London}} itself. Shortly after Federation, it was overtaken by Sydney, which has remained the largest city (and the possessor of vastly more iconic landmarks) ever since.

A resident of Melbourne is called a Melbournian (also spelt Melburnian) or Melbournite[[note]]This last one is almost never used in Melbourne itself[[/note]]. Melbourne tends to have a rivalry with UsefulNotes/{{Sydney}} and Adelaide in particular; the rivalry with Sydney over which city is better, and with Adelaide over who has the better football teams.

Melbourne is also the traditional home of Australian sport, having hosted the Olympics in 1956, being the birthplace and undisputed home of of AustralianRulesFootball, the birthplace of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trugo Trugo]] (Australia's only other homegrown sport), and home to the largest capacity cricket stadium in the world, the MCG[[note]]100,000 people[[/note]], although it plays host Australian Rules matches most of the time. As a result, sport dominates the Melbourne way of life. Go on, try to find a train with no Aussie Rules supporters in the winter.
