The Republic of Texas was officially recognized as an independent nation for 10 years from 1836-1846 until it was annexed to the Union.

Texas was one of only three states that existed as an independent country, the other two being Vermont (Vermont Republic) and Hawaii (Kingdom and Republic of Hawaii).
