Cetshwayo kaMpande
Birth: c. 1827
Death: Feb. 8, 1884

Zulu King. Cetshwayo was king of the Zulu nation in South Africa during the British invasion of 1879. Although his men fought bravely and inflicted one of the worst defeats in the history of the British military at Isandhlwana on January 22, 1879, their spears were ultimately no match for the British firepower. Cetshwayo was eventually captured and deposed.
