In 1891 a British protectorate was established under a Consul-General subject to the Foreign Office. In 1913 the Colonial Office assumed control, although the form of the protectorate remained, and a Resident was appointed. In 1963 Zanzibar became independent, and in 1964 it joined neighbouring Tanganyika to form Tanzania.
