About the Show

The Throne is a South African telenovela created by Ferguson Films and set in a fictitious BaTswana kingdom which revolves around a royal family in turmoil after the discovery of mineral deposits on their land.

Kweneng - a modest kingdom in the North West Province's Magaliesburg region that runs smoothly without major conflict, contestation or resentment - is thrown into a cocktail of treachery, deceit and turmoil when the minerals are discovered, and the reigning monarch's legitimacy is questioned.

Each member of the royal family embarks on a desperate quest to serve their own interest: be it ascending into the coveted seat or the pursuit of freedom – avoiding customary obligation and anxiety.

At the centre of the plot lies Queen Mosadi Kwena, the current ruler and matriarch, who is tasked with finding an heir to the throne between her daughters, Kefilwe and Mosetsana.

Alongside her daughters is the Queen's brother Moseki, who also has a claim to power and weaves a plot to override the rightful protocols.

Also in the mix is the wise communal sage, Sephiri, who is the custodian of cultural history, boundlessly loyal to the throne, and the only person who knows who the true successor will be.

The kingdom traces its lineage back many years, to a momentous event that occurred over five generations ago when a great Tswana king who ruled over a fertile valley uncovered a cruel betrayal by his only son.

As punishment, he decided to hand over the reins of his kingdom to his beloved eldest daughter, who would become the first in a long line of queens.

His furious son took some of the community with him and founded a rival monarchy – the Morule Kingdom – that many years later still disputes Queen Mosadi's rightful claim to the throne.

Queen Mosadi is a just and brilliant ruler. She was the first in her lineage to receive a university education, and she has put her schooling to great use.

She founded a tea company in the fertile valley of Kweneng. Kwena Tea is sold both locally and internationally, and is known to treat a multitude of ailments. It is a herbal infusion that her great aunt introduced to her as a teenager, made from traditional herbs.

Queen Mosadi realised the tea had the potential to create great wealth for her community. The wealth has been invested in roads, in infrastructure, and in education.

She rules over a peaceful kingdom, and her subjects love and adore her. But trouble is brewing in the kingdom of Kweneng...
