The Faroe Islands are a part of the Kingdom of Denmark, along with Denmark proper and Greenland. The Faroe Islands have been an autonomous province of Denmark since 1948. The Faroese have, over the years, taken control of most matters, some areas still remain the responsibility of Denmark, such as defence , foreign affairs and law.
