The Union of South Africa was a self-governing dominion of the British Empire from May 31, 1910 until May 31, 1961.


The Union of South Africa was formed by the merger of four previously discrete political units: The British colonies of Cape and Natal and the once-independent Boer republics of the Transvaal and Orange Free State.
