In 1879, Britain and the Zulu nation fought a brief but bloody war that included the famous Battle of Rorke's Drift. In memory of it, custom chess set maker Littlehand made a chess set with historic figures from that war. The Zulu king is Cetshwayo, who led his forces to battlefield victories early in the war. The British king is Lord Chelmsford and the queen piece is Victoria. You can see more photos at the link.
