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.
Benin is famous for its artifacts of iron, bronze, and ivory of which the best known is the FESTAC mask based on the head of Queen Idia (see our logo). Read more about the Benin Kingdom.
