1835-1900
In the 1830es, Boers had migrated from the Cape Colony into the interior to escape the hated British rule, and settled the area beyond the Vaal river. Having defeated the Zulu and Matabele, in 1839, they proclaimed the Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek, and the republics of Lydenburg and Zoutpansberg. The British recognized the Zuidafrikaanse Republiek in 1852. The three republics merged into a unified Zuid Afrikaanse Republiek in 1857. The capital was established at Pretoria (founded 1855). The parliament, called Volksraad (people's council) had 24 members.
In 1877, the republic, practically bankrupt, was annexed by Britain. In 1880, the Boers revolted, again proclaiming their independence. Invading British forces were defeated by the Boers in 1881 in the Battle of Majuba Hill.
In 1886 gold was found at Witwatersrand near Johannesburg; it proved to be the world's richest gold deposit. Johannesburg boomed, attracting mostly English-speaking immigrants who were denied citizenship and treated as "uitlanders".
In 1890, the tiny Boer republic of Klein Vrijstaat was incorporated into the Z.A.R.; in 1894 Swaziland was declared a protectorate of the Zuid-Afrikaanse Republiek. The Z.A.R. was allied with the Orange Free State, another Boer Republic.
The Boers strictly separated the white Boer settlers from both the native African population and the miners and fortune hunters at Johannesburg, whom they regarded foreigners, denying both political participation.
Cecil Rhodes, entrepreneur, prime minister of the Cape and colonial politician, provoked the (2nd) Boer War (1899-1902) which resulted in the annexion of what the British called Transvaal by Britain in 1902.

1900-1910
In 1900, the Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek was occupied by British troops. Stiffnecked Boer resistance ended in 1902; the republic, as Transvaal, was now annexed by Britain.
Self-government was introduced in 1907. In 1910, Transvaal, together with the Orange Free State, Natal and the Cape, joined to form the Union of South Africa.

1910-1994
Transvall was one of the 4 constituent provinces forming the Union of South Africa in 1910. The Union of South Africa took on the name (in English translation) the Transvaal had used until 1900. One of its capitals was Pretoria. From 1948 to 1994 Apartheid laws were in place. In 1961 the Union of South Africa unilaterally proclaimed independence and became the Republic of South Africa.

Since 1994
In 1994 Apartheid was abolished. Transvaal Province was divided into Northern Transvaal, Eastern Transvaal, Western Transvaal and Southern Transvaal. Since, these provinces have been renamed and rearranged into Gauteng, Limpopo, Mmpumalanga and North West Province.
