Wikipedia has a page called:

Shaka kaSenzangakhona (c. 1787 – 22 September 1828), better known as Shaka Zulu, was king of the Zulu from 1816 until his death. He leads the Zulus in Sid Meier's Civilization.

Total Threat Level: 4

Musical Theme Inspiration: unnamed original composition


Shaka's aggression is untempered in the event that his nation is less capable than your own. Even with his back against the wall, Shaka seems to prefer war to peace. Tactically, the Zulus don't usually develop their land overly, and are only moderately expansionist, making them not as great a threat as listed officially.

Civilopedia entry[]

"The first king of the Zulus, Shaka united the tribal villages under his rule and forged the Zulu army. In a short period he conquered all nearby enemies and established Zululand. He and his descendants ruled uncontested until Europeans arrived on the border. Though the Zulus were without peer as individual warriors, they proved no match for well-led European armies with superior weapons."
