  Former territories, dependencies and protectorates

The number of states headed by Queen Elizabeth II has varied during her 62 years on the throne, altogether seeing her as head of state of a total of 32 independent countries during this period. The 16 that presently have her as sovereign, known as Commonwealth realms, are shown in light green, while the remainder show in dark green the reign of Elizabeth II as their monarch, from their independence until their adoption of a republican form of government.

In her capacity as Queen of the United Kingdom (including the British overseas territories), she has also been monarch of three Crown Dependencies, Guernsey, Jersey, and Mann, since her accession in 1952. In her capacity as Queen of New Zealand, she has also been monarch of two associated states: the Cook Islands and Niue, since they acquired this status in 1965 and 1974, respectively.

The government of the unrecognised state of Rhodesia proclaimed its allegiance to Elizabeth II as queen of Rhodesia from 1965 to 1970. However, she did not accept either the role or the title and it was not accepted or recognized by any other state.

Fiji is a unique case. The country became a republic through a military coup in 1987, after which its Great Council of Chiefs continued to recognise Elizabeth II as queen, or Paramount Chief, until the council's de-establishment on 14 March 2012.[2] However, this was only a ceremonial title, with no role in government at all.[3]
