Kongo led by Nzinga Mbande is a custom civilization by Tomatekh[1], More Civilizations[2], and Cyon with contributions from Leugi and iamaplayer.

This mod requires Brave New World. It replaces the City-State of M'banza-Kongo with Kabongo.

Overview

Kongo

The Kingdom of Kongo (KiKongo: "Wene wa Kongo") was an African kingdom located in west central Africa in what is now northern Angola, Cabinda, the Republic of the Congo, and the western portion of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. At its greatest extent, it reached from the Atlantic Ocean in the west to the Kwango River in the east, and from the Congo River in the north to the Kwanza River in the south. The kingdom consisted of several core provinces ruled by the Manikongo, but its sphere of influence extended to neighboring kingdoms, such as Ngoyo, Kakongo, Ndongo and Matamba.

Nzinga

Nzinga Mbande was a 17th century queen of the Ndongo and Matamba Kingdoms of the Mbundu people in southwestern Africa. She is one of Africa's best documented early-modern rulers. She is noted for entering into the first African-European alliance against another European nation, an example of her shrewd diplomatic acumen, as well as her military success against the Portuguese.

Dawn of Man

Greetings brave Nzinga, Queen of the Ndongo and Matamba, your beauty is matched only by your cunning. Your Kingdom is part of the great Kingdom of Kongo, situated at the mouth of the mighty Congo River in central Africa. You defied tradition by claiming two thrones and are remembered for standing bravely against the onslaught of Imperialism. When the Portuguese invaded your lands you escaped death and shrewdly manipulated the Dutch into sending you aid. Together you turned back the army of the Portuguese at the Battle of Kombi. Yet, ever faced with threats both inside and out, the never-ending war took its toll. In the end, not even your bravery could stop the march of foreign crowns.

Mighty Queen, your people have been captured and sold into slavery. Yet, your old alliances stand firm and await your call. It is time for you to return, to instill your strength and spirit and lead your people into battle once more. Can you restore your war-torn land? Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?

Leaderscene by Leugi

Introduction: "Greetings, great ruler! I am Nzinga, Muchino a Muhatu of the Ndongo and Matamba. Come, let us form an alliance against any that may threaten our shores."

Introduction: "Welcome to my lands, great ruler! Do not look down upon me or dismiss me as a woman. I am the equal of any King, both in governance and in battle."

Defeat: "Foreign devil! It was you who lied and broke our treaties! You who sold my people! You do not deserve to own this great land!"

Defeat: "I seem to have been fighting with your kingdom my entire life. I am tired of this great battle and wish now only to find peace."

Strategy

DfCjFX9

Kongo is a Domination Civ, with their significant advantage being fighting around Rivers, negating all standard penalties. Early game exploration and settling benefits from this too. Extra Production towards ever-necessary Archery Units will save you some turns for other things, such as Raffia Mills. These grant access to a unique Luxury; try to settle next to Jungle a few times if you can. The Pombo shares the movement of Mounted Units, so keep a Horseman or Knight nearby to escort them to their target at double speed. Once there, they will soak up City damage better with Cover I as your cheaper Crossbows bombard away. With a Barracks you can get Pombo which start with Cover II.
