The territory which now forms Zimbabwe was administered by the British South Africa Company from the beginning of European colonization in 1890 until 1923 when it was granted the status of a self-governing colony. In 1911 it was divided into Southern and Northern Rhodesia (see ZAMBIA: Key Historical Events). In 1953 Southern and Northern Rhodesia were again united, along with Nyasaland, to form the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland. When this federation was dissolved on 31 Dec. 1963, Southern Rhodesia reverted to the status of a self-governing colony within the British Commonwealth.
