The Kingdom of Lesotho was previously under the British Crown Colony of Basutoland until declared independent from the United Kingdom on this day in 1966. 

Now a sovereign state and a member of the United Nations, Commonwealth of Nations and the Southern African Development Community, it is under the leadership of a monarch, King Letse III.

Located in the  South of Africa, it has a population of 2 million. The Kingdom of Lesotho is made up of mostly highlands where some of their villages can be reached only on horseback, foot or aircraft.
