Shaka sought revenge for Dingiswayo on Zwide and the Ndwandwe. He expanded his control over the Mtethwa and other tribes and then launched his attack on the Ndwandwe. Shaka scored two devastating victories in the course of an eighteen month war, although Zwide had escaped both times. Shaka entered the main village of Ndwandwe, captured Zwide’s mother and burned her instead of her son. Shaka had won the war, but the people he drove out caused a wave of instability across Africa: the Mfecane or the Crushing. Shaka himself was dangerously upset when his mother died and he began to grieve his people. His brothers murdered him to ascend the throne, resulting in a new king: Dingane. Dingane started negotiating with the Dutch colonists in South Africa, but what started out as a friendly relationship turned into a betrayal when he turned them on. Dingane attacked her wagon train at the Battle of the Bloody River, but the Dutch stopped him with their weapons. The Dutch then supported Dingane’s last surviving brother, Mpande, who successfully overthrown him and became the new Zulu king.
