In 1608 two African princes went to live with a Portuguese family in the town of Tete on the Zambezi River. This is their story, told against the backdrop of a wild and beautiful continent at war, and lost kingdoms of old Africa. The story is told through their eyes and through those of some of the people they encountered.
