Tupou Vi Biography

╩╗Aho╩╗eitu Tupou VI (Tongan: ÔÇśAhoÔÇśeitu ╩╗Unuaki╩╗otonga Tuku╩╗aho; born 12 July 1959) is the King of Tonga. He is the younger brother and successor of the late King George Tupou V. He was officially confirmed by his brother on 27 September 2006 as the heir presumptive to the Throne of Tonga, as his brother (a bachelor) had no legitimate children. He served as Tonga’s High Commissioner to Australia, and resided in Canberra until the death of King George Tupou V on 18 March 2012, when ╩╗Aho╩╗eitu ╩╗Unuaki╩╗otonga Tuku╩╗aho became King of Tonga, with the regnal name ╩╗Aho╩╗eitu Tupou VI. According to Astrologers, zodiac sign is Cancer This member of Polynesian royalty began his reign as King of Tonga in early 2012. He had previously served as both Prime Minister of Tonga and Tongan High Commissioner to Australia.

He was born in Nuku╩╗alofa, Tonga, the third son and youngest child of King T─üufa╩╗─ühau Tupou IV. He was educated at The Leys School, Cambridge, from 1973ÔÇô77. He then attended the University of East Anglia, where he read Development Studies, from 1977 to 1980. He started his career in the military, joining the naval arm of the Tonga Defence Services in 1982 and becoming a Lieutenant-Commander in 1987. He graduated from the US Naval War College as part of Class 33 in 1988. From 1990 to 1995 he commanded the Pacific-class patrol boat VOEA Pangai and his time in charge included peacekeeping operations in Bougainville. He graduated with a masters in Defence Studies from the University of New South Wales in 1997 and with an MA in International Relations from Bond University in 1999.

His marriage to Queen Nanasipau’u Tuku’aho resulted in three children: Princess Angelika L─üt┼źfuipeka Tuku╩╗aho, Prince Tupouto╩╗a ╩╗Ulukalala and Prince Ata.

In 1998 he ended his military career to become part of the government, first as the defence minister and the foreign minister at the same time, from October 1998 until August 2004. He took over these posts from his elder brother Tupouto╩╗a, at that time still the crown prince, later to become King Siaosi Tupou V (see below). Soon he was appointed as Prime Minister on 3 January 2000, a function he kept until his sudden resignation on 11 February 2006. Its reason has never been made clear, but was probably due to the unrest from a series of pro-democracy protests calling since mid-2005 for a lesser role for the royal family in government. His appointed successor, Feleti Sevele, was Tonga’s first prime minister who was not a hereditary estate holder or a member of the 33 noble families that make up the Tongan aristocracy. In 2008 ╩╗Aho╩╗eitu was appointed Tonga’s first High Commissioner to Australia, a post he held until his succession to the Tongan throne in 2012. In addition, he was also Ambassador to Japan from 15 January 2010 to his coronation in 2012. In 2013 he was appointed as Chancellor of the University of the South Pacific.
