Q: Who owns Tristan da Cunha?
Tristan da Cunha is a British overseas territory. The area was first discovered in 1506, but it did not have any permanent settlers until 1810. In 1816, Tristan da Cunha was annexed by the U.K., and it has stayed under British control ever since. The area does have its own political system, but the Queen has executive authority.
