Pretoria, the executive capital of South Africa, forms part of the City of Tshwane metropolitan municipality.  It was founded in 1855 by Marthinus Pretorius, a voortrekker leader, who named it after his father, Andries Pretorius.

The elder Pretorius had become a Voortreker hero after his victory over the Zulus in the Battle of Blood River. He also negotiated the Sand River Convention (1852), in which Britain acknowledged the independence of the Transvaal.  Pretoria became the capital of the South African Republic (ZAR) on 1 May 1860.
