The Basotho settled in the Drakensberg, where they survived the Lifaqane under the leadership of Moshoeshoe. After this, they came into conflict with Europeans in South Africa, including the British Cape Colony and the Boer Republic Orange Free State. After three Basotho Wars with the Free State, in 1868, Britain’s Queen Victoria accepted a proposal from Moshoeshoe to place his country under British protection.
