    This is a historical fiction novel about the life and the exploits of Queen King Nzinga, Africa s greatest warrior queen Although the author has dramatised this biography, it is none the less rich in its historical importance because the biographical novel is drawn from a fairly wide range of sources about actual historical events Queen Nzinga or as she called herself and her people called her Ngola King Nzinga demonstrated diplomatic prowess, courage and intelligence and sheer force of will power in this male dominated world of politics Her rise to power embodies the classic case of an African woman who su...

    Nzinga is heroine like Joan of Arc, BoadiceaI enjoyed this biography of a heroine of African 17th century history The details of life in Angola, then called Ndongo, were vividly presented from the politics, social structure, community and religious life to the always interesting subjects of food, clothing, fun, and sexual s Nzinga s rise to power and long standing fight against the incursions of the Portuguese are believably presented It was moving to witness the slave trade through the eyes of contemporary African observers.I was reminded of Mark Twain s remarkable book about Joan of Arc which I discovered totally by chance in a Paris bookshop I had never heard of it Nzinga belongs in the pantheon of women heroes with Joan, Boadicea who led a rebellion against the Romans in the UK and the Trung sisters who were military leaders in Vietnam around 2,000 years ago While this book is too l...

    Wonderful story not enough have heardThis story hasn t been heard by enough people, not even history geeks like me The story is a bit too full of individual episodes to hang together but those episodes are fascinating and the author s descriptions paint a terrific picture of time and place.
