PostSubject: can we say the King deserted   can we say the King deserted EmptyThu Jun 30, 2011 5:42 pm

I have been meaning to ask this question for sometime. Chetewayo was very keen to defend his country, against the invasion of the British, had no problems with sending his men into battle against superior fire power. Yet when he knew the war was loss instead of fighting with his armies he chose to go into hiding. If you read the history of Shaka he fought alongside his men. I wonder what the thinking of the Zulu' was after ulundi. Would they have looked upon their king as a coward or was it tradition for the king to find a place of safety. Bearing in mind his armies were defeated and there really was no where to go. Was it possible that this was remembered when he returned to Zululand after his holiday in England.
