Sarah Forbes Bonetta was a child born into a royal West African dynasty. She was orphaned in 1848, when her parents were killed in a brutal Nigerian slave-hunting war. She was captured and later given to Queen Victoria by Captain Fredrick. E. Forbes of the Royal Navy who received Sarah as a gift from King Ghezo of Dahomey. Mr. Forbes then gave her to Queen Victoria as a “gift”. Very interesting account of her life at this website.
