Rei Amador (King Amador) was said to be the King of the Angolares Kingdom and the leader of the famous Slave Revolt of 1595 on the West African Islands São Tomé e Príncipe. Historical records only allow us to say that Amador was a slave but in São Tomé e Príncipe he is seen as a king who mobilized other Africans to escape their enslavement and help create their own free kingdom, a Kilombo.
It is said that on July 9 1595, Amador raised a flag in front of the colonials and proclaimed himself the King of São Tomé e Príncipe, becoming known as King Amador – the liberator of all Black people. The 4th of January is a national day in São Tomé e Príncipe, a day to commemorate King Amador but also the Slave Revolt against the Portuguese slavery system. Still today, Rei Amador is actively remembered and commemorated on the islands as a historical figure of African self-determination and freedom. A statue of King Amador was inaugurated in 2004 by General Secretary of the United Nations, Kofi Annan.

there is not a better feeling than someone playing with your hair

Or running their fingers down your back.

Unless you thought you were alone.
