Njinga of Angola Africa's Warrior QueenNd honored in folk religions Her complex legacy forms a crucial part of the collective memory of the Afro Atlantic worl. ueen Njinga’s story belongs in everyone’s list of important people in world history She managed to secure a leadership role in a country that did not welcome females in positions of authority waged a heroic struggle to save her country from Portuguese invaders conducted international diplomacy in Africa and in Europe challenged the religious world in which she lived as both a Catholic and a follower of traditional religion She is certainly well known in Angola and in Brazil where she survives as a character in folklore but few know her story outside those two countriesLinda Heywood has produced at last a biography of Njinga which can elevate her to that place It is based on an amazingly rich and diverse set of original sources that include not only reports by Portuguese and Italian priests and missionaries soldiers or governors but even on a parcel of letters that Njinga herself wrote It is not because of a lack of first hand eyewitness accounts of her life that we do not know about her but rather because Africa and African leaders have gotten short shift in world historyThis is a compelling story well told with dozens of fascinating anecdotes and first hand accounts of her derring do Heywood shows her climbing down cliffs on a flimsy rope ladder to escape the Portuguese who are pursuing her of her remarkable gender role reversals in having her male concubines dress as women and sleep chastely among her serving maids or writing a letter of recommendation for a Portuguese ambassador who negotiated a peace treaty with herWe couldn’t have a better introduction to her life and times than Heywood’s breathtaking story that even committed readers of fiction would enjoy
