  1. Northern Rhodesia

    Northern Rhodesia was a territory in south central Africa, formed in 1911. It became independent in 1964 as Zambia. It was initially administered under charter by the British South Africa Company, and was formed in 1911 by the amalgamating North-Western Rhodesia and North-Eastern Rhodesia. Although it had features of a charter colony the territory's treaties and charter gave it the status of a protectorate. From 1924 it was administered by the British government as a British protectorate, and the special provisions required when it was administered by BSAC were terminated. The geographical, as opposed to political, term "Rhodesia" referred to a region generally comprising the areas that are today Zambia and Zimbabwe. From 1964 it only referred to the former Southern Rhodesia.
