Description

Shaka kaSenzangakhona (c. 1787 – 22 September 1828), also known as Shaka Zulu was one of the most influential monarchs of the Zulu Kingdom.

Some historians feel that Shaka ‘changed the nature of warfare in Southern Africa. A number of writers focus on Shaka’s military innovations such as the iklwa – the Zulu thrusting spear, and the “buffalo horns” formation. This combination has been compared to the standardisation implemented by the reorganised Roman legions under Marius.  By the time of Shaka’s assassination in 1828, it had made the Zulu kingdom the greatest power in southern Africa and a force to be reckoned with, even against Britain’s modern army in 1879.

Much controversy still surrounds the character, methods and activities of the Zulu king.  Fanciful commentators called Shaka, the Black Napoleon, and allowing for different societies and customs, the comparison is apt. Shaka is without doubt the greatest commander to come out of Africa.
