South African Republicball (Transvaal) was a Boer republic. It was located in Northern South Africa. Its capital was Pretoria.


It was founded in 1856 by Boers, exiles from the British Cape Colony, after the The Great Trek (Die Groot Trek). Their capital was located near rich gold mines, and much of their income came from this. The Transvaal, led by Paul Kruger, refused to grant political rights to Uitlanders and native Africans. All the while, British Imperialism was on the wane, and the British public's mood turned against oppression of the sort practiced by the Boers. Under this justification, Cecil Rhodes organized "the Raid" to provoke the Transvaal government, and possibly take it over, which failed miserably. Kruger, perceiving an attack to be imminent, mobilized and invaded Natal (British Zululand), using advanced German Mauser rifles bought using gold profits. After Two Anglo-Boer Wars, Orange Free Stateball (Oranje or Transoranje), South-African Republicball (le stronkest) and British Cape Colony (BOOO, YOU SUCK) and Natal (ISI ZULU) formed the Union of South Africa.
