Khesetoane Modjadji III (1869 – 1959) became the third Rain Queen from the South African Balobedu tribe of the South African Limpopo Province. Khesetoane reigned from 1895 to 1959. She was preceded by Rain Queen Masalanabo Modjadji and succeeded by Rain Queen Makoma Modjadji.
In 1894 her predecessor, Masalanabo Modjadji, committed ritual suicide. Khesetoane was the daughter of Masalanabo's "sister" and became the heir because Masalanabo's council had already designated it before Masalanabo's death.
