BRIEF HISTORY OF BENIN
The Benin kingdom, known as the Igodomigodo, in honor of its first ruler, Ogiso Igodo, is situated on the South East coast of West Africa. Oba Ewuare turned the kingdom into an empire (Benin Empire) about 1440 AD, after aggressive militarization and territorial expansion. At its height, the Benin empire extended from Onitsha to Ghana.
