What’s behind a name? About Queen Nzinga
Mbande Nzinga was a powerful queen who lived between the end of the 16th century and through the middle of 17th century (1583-1663). She reigned over a kingdom in Central Africa which is now known as modern day Angola. Queen Nzinga is hailed as one of the greatest women rulers in Africa. A visionary leader, a skilled diplomat and an astute politician she fought against the slave trade and European influences. Under her leadership, Angola resisted Portuguese colonization for about 30 years! She fought for a free Angola up until her death at age 82.
NB: Many names finishing in -Zinga/Jinga suffixes such as Muzinga, Mujinga, Zhinga, Jinga, are names of the same origin, in some part of central Africa at least, and it means ‘born with the umbilical cord around your neck’ (I was born that way read more below!)
