The Kingdom of Iraq (Arabic: المملكة العراقية‎ Al-Mamlakah Al-'Irāqiyyah) was officially declared as an independent state in 1932, granting full sovereign rights to Hashemites and ending the British Mandate regime.

Although the League of Nations mandate was awarded to Britain in 1920, the 1920 Iraqi revolt resulted in the scrapping of the original mandate plan in favor of British administered semi-independent kingdom, under the Hashemite allies of Britain. The kingdom of Iraq was granted full independence in 1932, following the Anglo-Iraqi Treaty (1930). The kingdom ended in 1958, when the monarchy was overthrown in a military coup, led by Abd al-Karim Qasim.
