Discover the remarkable history of the Kingdom of Dahomey...
Imagine a fervently militaristic state with a feared professional army that included some of the only all-female military units ever seen. Imagine that same state with its own unique and sophisticated culture, religion, language, art, and society.

The Kingdom of Dahomey was established in the seventeenth century and quickly rose to become one of the most powerful forces in West Africa. The society of this nation was based on conquest and the use of captives as slaves and human sacrifices.
