Queen Amina, warrior and queen of Zaria

Queen Amina was a warrior before being given the throne. She was the heir of the throne as the granddaughter of King Sarkin but refused royalty training and rather went through warrior training to become the greatest warrior of the Zazzau kingdom. She took over as queen when her mother died and ruled for 34 years spending the first three months of her royalty life as a warrior leading the army to defeat many enemies. The story of the naturally born bad-ass queen will be very exciting to watch.
