This paper reviews current understanding of the internal rotation of the Sun. We summarise the outcome of the latest helioseismic measurements of the angular velocity profile, and review existing dynamical models of rotation in the convection zone and in the radiative zone beneath. Finally, we discuss preliminary results along a new line of investigation.
