 For many years, children all around the world studied maps with large masses of pink.  This pink area represented the British Empire, the largest empire in the history of the world.  In each of these countries was a governor who governed the land in the absence of the monarch.  This site is dedicated to the often large and stately vice-regal homes scattered around the globe; homes of the governors of the British Empire.
