Spoiler Warning

T'Chaka was the king of Wakanda, a highly scientifically advanced country in Africa.

After a conflict in Lagos resulted in the deaths of several Wakandan humanitarians, T'Chaka accompanied his son, T'Challa , to a United Nations conference in Vienna to ratify the Sokovia Accords, which would bring the Avengers under close monitoring by the organization. During the conference, T'Chaka was killed in a bombing, seemingly caused by Bucky Barnes the Winter Soldier, but was actually caused by Helmut Zemo disguised as Barnes, in his plan to split the Avengers. As a result, T'Challa inherited the mantle of King of Wakanda and the role of its protector, Black Panther, vowing to track down and kill Barnes to avenge his father.[2]
