Ulundi

According to Zulu tradition, when a new king came to power, it was customary for him to build a new capital. Ulundi was built after Cetshwayo became king in 1873. In 1879, Ulundi was the scene of the final, decisive battle of the Anglo-Zulu war and was torched by 5000 victorious British soldiers. The town was subsequently rebuilt and became the capital of the apartheid-era homeland of KwaZulu. Today, after the merging of KwaZulu with the originally whites-only province of Natal, Ulundi shares joint-capital status with Pietermaritzburg.
