Description[edit | edit source]
The Boers were descendants of Dutch colonists who settled in South Africa after 1650 CE. After migrating into the hinterland after the British takeover of South Africa, they briefly controlled a number of republics, including the Transvaal and the Orange Free State, before being defeated by the British in the war of 1899-1902.
