I can't recall ever learning anything about N'Yami while T'Chaka gets a lot of attention.

How did she die?

Did T'Chaka cheat on her when he fathered T'Challa's half-brother Jakarra? Or did he divorce N'Yami and marry Jakarra's mother before he divorced her and married Ramonda and fathered Shuri? Or did T'Chaka have a polygamous multiple wives situation?

T'Chaka has numerous relatives...do we know any of N'Yami's extended family?

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

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.

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.

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.
