In the 19th century it became a protectorate under the British, and unlike many other colonies, the kingdoms and nations within protectorate retained with a wide degree of self-determination. The Bantu kings ruled in the south and continued to rule despite the British interests controlling many economic and inter-kingdoms affairs.

Until when Uganda became independent in 1962 and abolished the common wealth monarcy, and in 1967 Uganda abolished the remaining monarchies.
