  • The Cape Colony, established as a commandment and later governorate of the Dutch East India Company in 1652, and the outcome of the Battle of Muizenberg brought about British occupancy as a strategic move should the Dutch lose to France. The colony returned to the Dutch at the Peace of Amiens, but the British re-occupied the colony with the Battle of Blaauwberg, after the Napoleonic Wars had started; the cession of the colony was subsequently affirmed in the Anglo-Dutch Treaty of 1814. The Cape Colony then remained in the British Empire, becoming self-governing in 1872, and united with three other colonies to form the Union of South Africa. It then was renamed the Cape of Good Hope Province. South Africa became fully independent in 1931 by the Statute of Westminster. The Cape Colony was coextensive with the later Cape Province, stretching from the Atlantic coast inland and eastward along the southern coast, constituting about half of modern South Africa: the final eastern boundary, after several wars against the Xhosa, stood at the Fish River.
