Description

The Monarchy of Uganda (the Ugandan monarchy) was the system of government in which a hereditary monarch was the sovereign of Uganda from 1962 to 1963. Uganda shared the Sovereign with the other Commonwealth realms. The monarch's constitutional roles were mostly delegated to the Governor-General of Uganda. The royal succession was governed by the English Act of Settlement of 1701.

The monarchy was abolished in 9 October 1963, when Uganda became a republic within the Commonwealth. However, the new Ugandan state was deliberately not referred to as a republic, and the constituent native kingdoms (such as Buganda) continued in existence.
