Governor of New South Wales

The Governor (of New South Wales) is the Queen's representative in New South Wales. Prior to the introduction of "responsible government" in 1856, the Governor was responsible for the day-to-day running of the then colony, in later years advised by a "legislative council". After that, the Governor became mainly a ceremonial figure, responsible for appointing the Premier.
