Fiji became a sovereign state and an independent monarchy in the Commonwealth of Nations on 10 October 1970. Queen Elizabeth II became Fiji's monarch, and held the title of Queen of Fiji until 1987, when the monarchy was deposed following two military coups, led by Lieutenant Colonel Sitiveni Rabuka.
The monarch's functions were exercised in Fiji by her representative, the Governor-General of Fiji.
In 1987, following the monarchy's overthrow, the position of governor-general was abolished. The Fijian monarch was replaced with a president as head of state.
