Legitimacy is the attribute of a government that prompts the governed to acquiesce willingly to its authority.
Under traditional forms of government that ruled most of the world until a few centuries ago, such as monarchy and oligarchy, these powers were concentrated in the hands of one person or a small group of people.
Governments thus exist for the purpose of serving the needs and wishes of the people, and their relationship with the people is clearly stipulated in a "social contract" (a constitution and a set of laws) which both the government and the people must abide by.

The Australian government was located in Melbourne during the formation of the Commonwealth of Australia in 1901 and 1927, and the official residence of the Governor-General (the representative of the Crown in Australia) was Government House, Melbourne.
