Brief History of Lesotho

Basutoland was renamed the Kingdom of Lesotho upon independence from the United Kingdom in 1966. King Moshoeshoe was exiled in 1990, but returned to Lesotho in 1992 and reinstated in 1995.

Constitutional government was restored in 1993 after 23 years of military rule. In 1998, violent protests and a military mutiny following a contentious election prompted a brief but bloody intervention by South African and Botswanan military forces under the aegis of the Southern African Development Community. Constitutional reforms have since restored political stability; peaceful parliamentary elections were held in 2002.
