Njinga, aka Nzinga, aka Ana de Sousa was one of the longest-reigning and most consequential monarchs in history. She ruled over Ndongo and Matamba (near modern-day Angola) for thirty-seven years and is an icon for women over age 40, queer people, and anyone who loves a fashion moment and a grand entrance.
