The ancient civilization of the Kingdom of Kongo was a thriving society from 1390 to 1914, although becoming a vassal of Portugal in 1857; it still remained a thriving and strong civilization. The Kongolese people were regarded for their strong military skills as well as their overwhelming amount of Christianization. This was due to the willing conversion of King Nzinga a Nkuwu, by the Portuguese. The Kingdom of Kongo was one of overwhelming expansion, because of their military tactics and relentless need for more power and expansion.
