The Kingdom of Crimea (Crimean: Ottoman Turkish: ) was a constitutional monarchy that existed in Crimea from 14 March(O.S.) / 26 March 1881 with the crowning of a Ottoman noble as khan , until 1947 with the abdication of Khagan , and the Crimean parliament proclaiming Crimea a people's republic.

Formed after the Crimean War, from lands of the Former Crimean Khanate, the Kingdom of Crimea rule . But lost Yedisan to Romania during the Second Balkan War.

Following a disastrous World War II campaign on the side of the Axis powers and name change (Legionary Crimea), Crimea joined the Allies in 1944, losing Yedisan to the Soviet Union. The influence of the neighboring Soviet Union and the policies followed by Communist-dominated coalition governments ultimately led to the abolition of the monarchy, with Crimea becoming a People's Republic on the last day of 1947.
