President Paul Kruger of the South African Republic (Transvaal), 1900 (c)

Photograph by W Plume, Boer War (1899-1902), 1900 (c).

The Boers affectionately referred to Kruger (1825-1904) as 'Oom Paul' or 'Uncle Paul', and his large frame, baggy black suits, grey hair, whiskers, and top hat were often caricatured by British cartoonists. Nevertheless, he was a formidable opponent and became the internationally renowned face of the Boer resistance to the British Empire.
