In the Zulu kingdom, the most successful of the warring chiefs was Shaka, who seized the throne of the little Zulu chieftainship in the valley of the White Mfolozi River from his half-brother in 1816. This chapter discusses Shaka's rule over the entire region and the ways in which he exemplified the warrior hero as conceived by the amaZulu.
