In Eight Zulu Kings, well-respected and widely published historian John
Laband examines the reigns of the eight Zulu kings from 1816 to the present. Starting with King Shaka,
the renowned founder of the Zulu kingdom, he charts the lives of the kings
Dingane, Mpande, Cetshwayo, Dinuzulu, Solomon and Cyprian, to today’s King Goodwill Zwelithini
whose role is little more than ceremonial. In the course of this investigation
Laband places the Zulu monarchy in the context of African kingship and tracks and analyses the
trajectory of the Zulu kings from independent and powerful pre-colonial African rulers to largely
powerless traditionalist figures in post-apartheid South Africa.
