From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A government-in-exile is a group of people who claim they are the real government of a country, but who live in another country.[1] These were common during World War II, when Germany took over several countries, and the leaders of those countries escaped to safety in Britain. When the war ended, most were able to return to their home countries.

Today, there are some governments-in-exile. They include:

Not many countries recognize (accept) these groups for different reasons.

There used to be more governments-in-exile in the past (more commonly during World War II), but many have either disbanded, were able to regain power of the country they left from, or transfer their assets to the new government.
