The Head of the Commonwealth heads the Commonwealth of Nations, an intergovernmental organisation which currently comprises 53 sovereign states. The first Head of the Commonwealth was King George VI, the British monarch who was also head of state of many states and territories within the British Empire. The second and current Head of the Commonwealth is Queen Elizabeth II. Within the current 53 Commonwealth members, 16 are normally described as Commonwealth realms, where Elizabeth II serves separately as head of state in her capacity as sovereign. 31 members are Commonwealth republics, such as South Africa, with India becoming the first republic within the Commonwealth in January 1950. These countries, mainly former British colonies, do not have Elizabeth II as head of state, and instead have elected presidents. Four countries, Brunei, Lesotho, Swaziland and Tonga, have alternative monarchs of different royal houses; Malaysia operates a more complex system of constitutional elective monarchy.
