Phases of the Shona

Mapungubwe phase – which marks its earliest emergence from c. 1040 – 1270 in the dry mopane woodlands of the Shashe-Limpopo basin

Great Zimbabwe phase – dating from c. 1270 – 1550 in the wetter Brachystegia-dominated miombo of the south-central Mashonaland highveld

Decline of the Great Zimbabwe phase – which split into two regions:
(i)The northern plateau of Mashonaland south of the Zambesi river which evolved into the Mutapa state from c. 1450 – 1900

(ii)Torwa state based around Khami from c. 1450 – 1650, that was replaced by a Rozvi-Changamire state from c. 1680 – 1830

Kingdoms and Kings

Dande: This likely refers to the Dande River, not a chiefdom.

Mukaranga: This was a powerful kingdom ruled by the “Mwene Mutapa,” a title meaning “Monomotapa” referring to the king [1].

Guruuswa: This might be Guruve, a town within the historical realm of the Rozwi Empire, another powerful Shona kingdom. The Rozwi had a paramount chief known as the “Changamire” [2].

Batau: There’s a strong chance “Batau” is a misspelling or variant term for the Batonga people. The Batonga are a Bantu ethnic group who primarily live in southern Zambia along the Kafue River, with some settlements in southwestern Zimbabwe [1]. The Batonga people have a rich cultural heritage and social structure with chiefs called “indunas” [.

Shangwe: The Shangwe people don’t have a centralized monarchy. They have a more decentralized leadership structure [3].

Manyika: This region was historically part of the Mutapa Kingdom and later the Rozwi Empire. So, the Mwene Mutapa or Changamire would’ve held some authority. The Manyika people also have their own traditional leadership structures [4].

Danda: Uncertain. This could be another spelling of “Dande” or a lesser-known locality with a local chief.

Chidima and Uteve: There’s limited information available to definitively link them to specific chiefs or kingdoms. They could be place names or names with significance in a local language.


Zvongombe: This was an early capital of the Kingdom of Mutapa. The Mutapa king, holding the title Mwene Mutapa, would have held significant authority here.

Nhunguza, Ruanga, Tere: There’s limited information available to pinpoint specific chiefs who ruled these exact locations. They could have been smaller settlements under the authority of larger kingdoms like Mutapa or Rozwi or even governed by their own local chiefs.

Mutoko: This region was historically within the realm of the Mutapa Kingdom and later the Rozwi Empire. So, the Mwene Mutapa or Changamire (Rozwi leader) would have held some influence. The area probably also had its own local chiefs.

Tsindi and Zvipadze: Similar to Nhunguza and Ruanga, information about specific historical chiefs for these locations is limited. They could have been part of larger kingdoms or had their own local leadership.


Great Zimbabwe

Multiple leaders have gone with the name Mutapa with some being pupets of the portuguese.

6. Mapungubwe

Senior Chief

2. Naletale

The title “Chibvumani” refers to a hereditary chieftaincy in Zimbabwe, not a single individual. It’s associated with the Chivi people, a subgroup of the Shona people in the southeastern part of the country

The Chibvumani is not just a political leader, but also holds spiritual significance for the Chivi people.
