Black Pharaohs: The Kings of Kush - Egypt's 25th Dynasty

 

*Once upon a time, in the ancient past, Before the Common Era (BCE), in an time most European scholars refer to as the mythical “dark ages.”

In the land of Kush, (Egypt) there lived a great, grand, highly enlighten civilization of sophisticated, charismatic, powerful and compassionate African kings, who would become Egyptian Pharaohs. They thrived, prospered and ruled for thousands of years BCE. These same kings were students of the ancient mystery schools of Africa, worshippers of Amun (one God), and the Laws of Ma’at.

Lost in antiquity and shrouded in mystery, ancient Nubia (another name for Kush), extended south along the Nile River from the First Cataract to the Shubaluga Gorge (Sixth Cataract ). Today this region is located in modern Sudan, with a small portion crossing into southern Egypt also known as the Land of Ham, by the ancient Egyptians, Libyans, Assyrians, Hebrews, and Persians. It was also called Ethiopia by the Greeks, Romans and 19th & early 20th century writers.

 Mansa Musa, or Musa I of Mali is considered one of the richest men in history. Musa was the tenth emperor of the Mali Empire, one of the prosperous Sahelian kingdoms that developed along the Saharan slave trade routes in the later medieval period.  His net worth was 400 Billion dollars which tops the Rocker-fellers. To this day he is considered the richest man on earth and responsible for some of the wealth in Egypt. Egypt is defined as Africa or the land of the blacks according to google and Wikipedia. 

Queen Nefertiti- February Tribute

 Pharaoh Akhenaten's rule of Kemet, now known as ancient Egypt in northeast Africa along the Nile River, is reflected in the archaeological records as one with a long period of peace and prosperity throughout the kingdom. Akhenaten ruled the throne of a unified Kemet with his wife Queen Nefertiti. 

 Nefertiti may have been the daughter of Ay, a top adviser who would go on to become pharaoh after King Tut’s death in 1323 B.C. An alternate theory suggests she was a princess from the Mittani kingdom in northern Syria. She was her husband’s Great Royal Wife (favored consort) when he ascended the throne in Thebes as Amenhotep IV. In the fifth year of his reign, he displaced Egypt’s chief god Amon in favor of Aten, moved the capitol north to Amarna and changed his name to Akhenaten, with Nefertiti taking on the additional name “Neferneferuaten”—her full name meaning “Beautiful are the beauties of Aten, a Beautiful Woman has come.”

Shaka, also spelled Chaka or Tshaka, (born c. 1787—died Sept. 22, 1828), Zulu chief (1816–28), founder of Southern Africa's Zulu Empire. He is credited with creating a fighting force that devastated the entire region. 

 

Shaka, founder of the Zulu Kingdom of southern Africa, is murdered by his two half-brothers, Dingane and Mhlangana, after Shaka’s mental illness threatened to destroy the Zulu tribe.

When Shaka became chief of the Zulus in 1816, the tribe numbered fewer than 1,500 and was among the smaller of the hundreds of other tribes in southern Africa. However, Shaka proved a brilliant military organizer, forming well-commanded regiments and arming his warriors with assegais, a new type of long-bladed, short spear that was easy to wield and deadly. The Zulus rapidly conquered neighboring tribes, incorporating the survivors into their ranks. By 1823, Shaka was in control of all of present-day Natal. The Zulu conquests greatly destabilized the region and resulted in a great wave of migrations by uprooted tribes.
