The name Shaka translates to “intestinal parasite”. Born out of wedlock in 1787 to Zulu King Sanzangakona, Shaka started with not so humble beginnings. Both Shaka and mother were forced to move out of their village. At the age of sixteen, Shaka was able to take revenge on individuals who treated him and his mother badly, and exhibited general disregard for life by joining Chief Diniswayo’s warrior group. Dingiswayo made Shaka a Zulu Warrior Chief, where he changed the Zulu army’s structure, training, weapons used, and introduced the “buffalo horns” formation. Shaka became one the best known Zulu Chiefs because of his conquest and assimilations over neighboring clans. Over the course of his 10 year reign, the Zulu Nation population grew up to 2 million. Shaka died by the hands of his 2 half brothers in 1828, at the age of 41.
