    I have no idea about Jakarra and his mother...had to do some research.


I don't think it's ever explained whether Jakarra is a bastard or if his mother really was wedded to T'Chaka.

I had wondered if it was something like J's mom was of the Dora Milaje and might have been a prospective queen from a rival Wakandan tribe...and for whatever reason the marriage/engagement just didn't work out. Like maybe J's mom and N'Yami were T'Chaka's bodyguards and he chose to only keep N'Yami.

    It is my understanding that N'Yami died in childbirth with T'Challa. Ramona is the only mother T'challa has ever known. I think T'Chaka only had the two wives. Now concubines or something else....no idea.


Maybe it's a sticky situation. T'Chaka having a bastard son might look bad. But having a middle wife between N'Yami and Ramonda that is never referenced or named just seems awkward. And sort of ruins the flow of Ramonda's story.
