    Where is Queen Amanirenas? She was the greatest Nubian Queen who ruled during the 1st century B.C.E. and lead 30,000 Nubian soldiers against’s the Roman garrisons in Aswan and Philae, And literally defeated the Romans in a war that lasted for five years, with a treaty that was favourable to Meroe, King Piankhi & Taharqa needs some recognition as well.

    Also, you forgot to mention the Nubian Pharaoh Taharqa who saved Jerusalem from destruction by the Neo-Assyrian Empire, he was a general before he became the king, with Taharqa’s help, there would be no abrahamic religions today, he was also a pyramid builder, Sudan has the most pyramids in the Nile Valley.

    Also, King Piankhi who was founder of the 25th Dynasty who defeated the Libyan monarchs in the North at the Delta, and he was welcomed by the local people at Thebes and attended at the Opet festival.

    Daniel Kaluuya should play as King Taharqa and Idris elba should play as King Piankhi.

    My favorite thing about short history videos is all the comments saying “oh I wish they had mentioned this person/thing.” Means I get more people to learn about, even if the show had to cut them for time.

    Shaka was really a warlord who slaughtered his neighbors. His “empire” was 2000 square miles smaller than Kansas.

    He was no where near Haile Selassie or Mansa Musa.

    That was very bad research. The Solomonoid dynasty reigned almost uninterrupted for 3000 years, the longest in world history. The most powerful pharoahs were the 18th Dynasty in Egypt, which were very dark Africans from Nubia. Mentioning Shaka Zulu is such a deep insult.

    Reply
  • Syed Shah Nawaz Ali 2 years ago

    The point of the video was to highlight the fact that Africans were not some jungle dwelling tribals that white men took as slaves.
    But here in the comments people are busy suggesting their favorite royals. Like this was an hour long history documentary.

    The theoretical origin of the Selassie line was King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. The Ethiopians claim that she left Jerusalem carrying Solomon’s (first) child. This was the beginning of the Ethiopian dynasty.

    _ Queen Abla Pokou of the Baoule nation of Ghana and Cote d’ivoire.
    _ Emperor Menelik II of Ethiopia (who defeated the Italian Conquerors)
    _ Emperor Prempeh of the Ashanti Empire of Ghana
    _ Emperor Behanzin of the Dahomey Empire of Benin
    _ Emperors Sundiata Keita and Mansa Munsa of the powerful Mali Empire
    _ Quen Ranavalona of Madagascar
    _ …

    “Shaka” means “intestinal beetle”, because his mom needed a cover story when she was pregnant, allegedly true story. He beat an army of British riflemen with melee units, by locally inventing reserve troops and encirclement.

    Too bad about murderous half-siblings, but the man was a king.

    Jesus was Middle Eastern. Obviously, he was brown. Being either white or black, in that region, would have been very unusual and remarked upon. Speaking of which: *_North_* Africans aren’t black, either. (well some are, due to immigration/emigration, but… also, North Africa and the Middle East has some overlap. Egypt is part of both)
