For the MWE below:



% TITLE PAGE %%%%%
\maketitle %Title page

%make an empty page



\thispagestyle{empty} %Empty page

Some acknowledgment

\vspace*{3.5cm} %space so that page stays empty

% For header and footers %%%%%%%%%%
% Clear the default

\renewcommand*\contentsname{Table of Contents}


Why does the title page starts from II instead of I ? It was fine until I added the part %make an empty page. Any ideas ?
