Nguni-speaking settlers were probably the first to recognize the suitability of the valley that would become the place to be located the future city of Pretoria as a settlement. The city itself was founded in 1855 by Marthinus Wessel Pretorius, a leader of the Voortrekkers, and named in honor of his father, Andries Pretorius. This became a national hero for the Voortrekkers after his victory over the Zulus at the Battle of Blood River. Andries Pretorius was also present at the Sand River Treaty (1852), in which Great Britain recognized the independence of Transvaal.
