Episode 2: The Kingdom of the Kongo
The History of the Congo starts in earnest now as we start to look at the West of the country. Here we meet the Kingdom of the Kongo as it was in the 13th Century.
There are not too many images or photos of this time so I have added a photo of the Padrao, of stone cross, that was left at the end of the River Congo, or River Zaire, in 1482.
You can see this at the Sociedade de Geografia de Lisboa, or the Geographical Society of Lisbon, which you can find West of Rossio in downtown Lisbon.
