The Kingdom of Rwanda was a pre-colonial kingdom in East Africa beginning in c. 1081, which survived with some of its autonomy intact under German and Belgian colonial rule until its monarchy was abolished in the Rwandan Revolution. After a 1961 referendum, Rwanda became a republic and received its independence in 1962. Since the monarchy was officially abolished, a court in pretence has been maintained abroad. The current titular king of Rwanda is Mwami Yuhi VI.
