Other states and Kingdoms

Gaza, Swazi, Pedi, Mpondoand southern Tswana

The gaza kingdom
The Gaza Kingdom

-The Biggest State, but most of it was situated in modern day Mozambique

-the leaders were called “Ngoni”

-the people in the kingdom were called “shangaan”

-Shoshangane was the ruler- he was also a military leader under Zwide.

-The Gaza kingdom was powerful because of it’s trade in ivory and slaves to delagoa bay.

-Shoshangane defeated Portuguese forces who wanted to end his control of the trade in that region. After this, the Gaza kingdom dominated the whole region.

Swazi kindom
Swazi Kindom

  • a smaller state that emerged after the Ndwandwe kingdom collapsed.

  • It was controlled by the Dlamini clans, but Sobhuza was the leader

  • Sobhuza avoided conflict with his neighbours through marriage allainces to strengthen his position. He married one of Zwide’s daughters and two of his daughters became Shaka’s wives.

  • Theswazi defeated a raid by the Zulu in 1836

The p edi state
The Pedi state

  • An important state because of it’s control over trade routes from the interior to Delagoa Bay.

  • It was broken apart by the Ndwandwein the early 1800’s, but after the Ndwandwe were defeated it was rebuilt under it’s leader Sekwati.

  • He established a fortified hilltop settlement between the Steelport and Olifants Rivers. This gave protection to refugees in the area.

The m pondo kingdom
The Mpondo Kingdom

  • It was the strongest power south of the Mzimkulu River.

  • They managed to defend themselves from waves of refugees from the fighting further north.

  • They resisted a Zulu attack in 1828

  • They allowed refugees from other conflicts to join their kingdom.

Southern tswana chiefdoms
Southern Tswana chiefdoms:

  • Southern Tswana groupings (the Barolong and Batlhaping) were disrupted by raids in the 1820’s.

  • They allied with the Griqua and Sotho raiders.

  • But they continued to be attacked by the Ndebele and also the Griqua who turned against their former allies.

  • They gathered around the missionary station established at Kuruman in 1816- many of them became Christians.

  • When the missionaries moved to Griquatown in 1825 the Batlhaping left the Kuruman area and moved to the Harts valley

  • They got guns and horses and were able to establish control over the region in the 1830’s.

  • The increasing weakness of the San groups (as a result of raids for their labour) helped them.
