Camilla. “The young scientist, Jon Dale, seeks a lost civilization in Africa, composed of the same Norsemen who went there during the Crusades, and who found the secret of eternal life. He falls into the power of beautiful Camilla, queen of the lost empire.” Queen Camilla is wicked--her people practice human sacrifice on a daily basis--but she mends her ways thanks to Dale’s influence. She is immortal, thanks to the fountain of youth, and as a Jungle Hero enforces justice in the jungle, both on her own and as Queen, fighting everything from hostile natives to Nazis to violent gorillas to a tribe of Amazons to lion cultists to the Devil Himself. Besides Dale Camilla has a Viking ally, Eric, and a dog, Fang.
