Queen Nzinga Of Ndongo And Matamba


Queen Ann Nzingha, Is The Great National Figure of Pre-Colonial Angola, In Southern Africa. The Extraordinary Scholar John Henrik Clarke Referenced her As The “Greatest Military Strategist That Ever Confronted The Armed Forces Of Portugal.” Queen Nzingha Was Born In Central Africa In A Portuguese Settlement Around 1582 And Her Brilliance Was Recognized Early On. The Fact That She Was A Woman Was Not An Impediment To Her Ability To Lead. She Was Often Sought After First When It Came To Important Issues Of War. Toward The Middle Of Her Life, She Became Increasingly Aggressive In Her Desire To Maintain The Power And Dignity Of The People Of Central Africa. Indeed, Her Military Campaigns Kept The Portuguese In Africa At Bay For More Than Four Decades. Her Goal Was The Final And Complete Eradication Of The Portuguese Capture And Enslavement Of African people.

Queen Nzingha Ambitiously Sent Ambassadors And Representatives Throughout West And Central Africa With The Goal Of Building A Massive Coalition Of Africans To Eject The Portuguese. The Beautiful Queen Nzingha Died Fighting For Her People in 1663 At The Age Of 81. Thank You Once Again For Joining Us Here At Rantings Of Mocha As We Continue To Honor Women’s History Month!
