Israel, Isban. Isban Israel was created by the South African creators George Cossins and Joseph Albrecht (Copper Mask) and appeared in the novel Isban Israel (1896); the novel was filmed under the same title in 1920. 

Isban Israel is the ruler of a Lost Race of white Africans living in an underground city beneath the Great Zimbabwe ruins. Israel is a depot who dominates his people along with his wife, Queen Ira Ban Israel. But outsiders bring trouble into the city, in the person of the daughter of a famous archaeologist, and eventually the outsiders kill King Israel and free his people.
