portugal conquered two kingdoms in angola. angola is in africa. the two kingdoms names were ndongo and kongo. ndongo and kongo were conguered by the portugue in the 15oo's, making these kingdoms colonies of portugal. the first african slaves that landed in viginia were from angola, a colony of portugal, they spoke, bantu, kimbundu, and kikongo. these 20 african slaves from angola, a colony of portugal, arrived in virginia in 1619. The rest came later.
