Njinga: “The Warrior Queen”

by Janie Havemeyer

Njinga, “The Warrior Queen,” a lioness by any definition, fought fiercely to keep her people from slavery. Yet she engaged in slave trading herself, performed human sacrifices and—some believed—even murdered her nephew, feasting on his heart. Was Njinga a terrifying tyrant or a freedom fighter?
