Today in history - October 10, 1874


The Colony of Fiji was a British colony that existed from 1874 to 1970 in present-day Fiji. The United Kingdom declined its first opportunity to annex Fiji in 1852. On 10 October 1874, 96 years of British rule began in Fiji. In 1882, the capital was moved from Levuka to the more accessible Suva.

The colony was divided into four regions, each under the control of a Roko; these regions were further subdivided into twelve districts, each ruled by a traditional chief. A Great Council of Chiefs was established in 1876 to advise the Governor.
