Ntare I Kivimira Savuyimba Semunganzashamba Rushatsi Cambarantama was the king of Burundi from 1680 to 1709. He was a legendary descendant of the Ntwero family, and was probably the first king of Burundi. He has the longest name of someone famous without a shortened alternative.
There are two main founding legends for Burundi. Both suggest that the nation was founded by a man named Cambarantama, but the legend most promoted today states that he was Rwandan. The other version, more common in pre-colonial Burundi, says that Cambarantama came from the southern state of Buha.
