Cecil John Rhodes, a mining entrepreneur, and his British South Africa Company arrived in the 1800s. He was able to defeat the area's kings and tribal chieftains with the assistance of British troops. He gave it the name Rhodesia and declared it a British colony. The colony was governed by the British South Africa Company until Rhodes' death in 1902. The name was changed to Southern Rhodesia in 1923, when it became a British colony with its own government. The name was changed to Republic of Zimbabwe following the locals' victory over the British in their struggle for independence in April 1980. The name means "a great house of stone" in an indigenous local language.
