The Swazi migrated into this area in the last half of the eighteenth century. The independence of the Swazi was guaranteed in 1881 and 1884 by the British government and the government of the South African Republic. From 1903 the governor of Transvaal administered the territory. In 1968, Swaziland became independent. They changed their name to the Kingdom of eSwatini in 2018.[1]
