PostSubject: Zibhebhu Wives Children   Tue Mar 19, 2013 8:53 pm

Hello, I have had an interest in Zibhebhu and am very fortunate to have a Lloyd of Durban image of him in my collection. I have seen images of Zibhebhu with one of his wives, but was wondering if anyone may know how many wives he had and how many children? When Dinuzulu and forces defeated Zibhebhu and his forces, did Zibhebhu have any male children old enough that were part of his fighting force? Any information would be helpful and greatly appreciated. Thank You. Best, Mike

Hi Mr. Greaves, Thank You for the kind words and great link! It is very much appreciated! Zibhebhu has been a great interest of mine. Too young, if I remember correctly, to have a high command at Isandlwana, but one of the greatest commanders of his time. So strange at times to think that many of the great commanders he served with, especially Ntshingwayo, would later be killed by men under his command.

Thank You Mr. Greaves. I am still very much a novice on these matters, but I always love to learn as much as I can. I really love to collect and learn about the Zulu commanders and the Zulu civil war, before and after the return of Cetshwayo. Also a lot of interest in Dinuzulu's time on St. Helena, with his uncles, especially Ndabuko, and the rebellion of 1906. Thank You.

A very good section on Zibhebhu kMapitha, of course, from page 233 onwards in Ian Knight's [i]Companion to the Anglo-Zulu War.
