Ramonda, was the former Queen of Wakanda, wife to T'Chaka the King, surrogate mother T'Challa and mother to Princess Shuri.[1]

She was originally from South Africa and won the heart of T'Chaka after his previous wife N'Yami died giving birth to T'Challa. After his father died, T'Challa believed Ramonda left Wakanda to be with another man, though it turned out she was abducted during a protest by a white supremacist named Anton Pretorius. Pretorius made her disappear via paperwork/bureaucracy and brought her to his mansion, where he kept Ramonda hidden from the public and sexually abused her for years on end. When T'Challa found out, he freed Ramonda and welcomed her back to Wakanda as the Queen Mother.[2]

During a terrorist attack on the Golden City perpetuated by suicide bombers on behalf of the rebellious force known as the People, Ramonda was gravely injured.[3] She was kept in a coma, having her legs broken and several vertebrae fractured. T'Challa expected her to suffer from paralysis once she awoke.[4] Ramonda would eventually wake up some time following the defeat of the People,[5] and recover to the point of being able to walk with a cane.[6]
