A postcard from the Kingdom of Tonga

The Kingdom of Tonga is a sovereign state and an archipelago in the South Pacific Ocean.  A group of more than 170 islands spread over an area of the South Pacific roughly the size of Japan. Tonga is the last Polynesian monarchy.

George (Siaosi) Tupou V, King of Tonga died 18 March 2012 at the age of 63. He is succeeded by his younger brother, Prince 'Ulukalala Lavaka Ata. He takes the title King George Tupou VI.

George Tupou V was crowned king of the small Polynesian nation in August 2008. He took over after the 2006 death of his father, King Taufa'ahau Tupou IV, who had ruled the small Polynesian nation since 1967.
