|[[|border|251x400px]]||England seizes the Virgin Islands from Dutch pirates and establishes in 1666 the colony of Virgin Islands (later called the British Virgin Islands). In 1833 the British Virgin Islands become part of the Leeward Islands. When the Leeward Island join in 1958 the West Indies Federation, the British Virgin Islands become a seperate British dependency. Since 1967 the Virgin Islands are a parliamentary democracy with an own chief minister.|
