A documentary about the search for king Lobengula's treasure.

Lobengula was crowned as the Ndebele king in September 1868 after the death of his father. It was reported that disputes arose over his legitimacy to be the Ndebele king considering that his mother was a Swazi Princess. He was however sworn in as the Matebele king and was coronated in 1869.

It is believed that Lobengula died in 1894, but the cause of his death is still unknown.Some have argued that he succumbed to smallpox after he fled his capital heading northwards towards the Zambezi River whilst this has been dispelled on the basis that he was killed by members of the BSAC.
