[2] The Triumvirate was appointed and took oath of office at the session of the Volksraad on 13 Dec 1880 in Paardekraal. A public declaration of the re-establishment of the government followed on 16 Dec 1880 in Heidelberg.
[3] When signing the documents as a member of the Triumvirate or on behalf of this body, he normally adds Vice-President to his signature, the office he was holding 8 Mar 1877 - 12 Apr 1877 and 13 Dec 1880 - 9 May 1883.
[4] After the fall of Pretoria (5 Jun 1900) to the armed forces of the United Kingdom and during the continuing warfare (to 31 May 1902), the government of the South African Republic retained control over parts of its former territory. Kruger left the national territory and departed from South Africa, exercising the functions of diplomatic representation of the South African Republic abroad. The functions of head of state were exercised by Vice President Schalk Willem Burger (10 Sep 1900 - 31 May 1902).
