Fiji became a British Crown Colony in 1874, and an independent dominion in the Commonwealth in 1970. Queen Elizabeth II remained the Head of State, holding the title of Queen of Fiji until 1987, when she formally abdicated following two military coups. From 1874 to 1987 the Monarch's functions were exercised in Fiji by his or her representative, the Governor (up to 1970), and, following independence, by the Governor-General.
