Intare

African - A king in Burundi. Son of Mwambudza. On his accession to the throne, he asked King Ruhaga for his daughter, Juru, as a wife. Ruhaga sent Kikore, her half-sister, in her place. Intare, in disguise, entered Ruhaga's court and eloped with Juru. When his country was affected by drought, he went to the top of the highest mountain and struck the yellow stone, Iyogera. A river then flowed from the stone to become the source of the Nile. Also identified as Intare, Kanyarundi, Kanyarundi, Chambara-Ntama, Intare Rushadi or Intare (-Rushadi).
