WHAT DOES ASANTEHENE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Asantehene

List of rulers of Asante

The Asantehene is the absolute monarch of Ashanti and the Ashanti people. The Ashanti royal house traces its line to the Oyoko Abohyen Dynasty of Nana Twum and the Beretuo Dynasty of Osei Tutu Opemsoo, who formed the Empire of Ashanti in 1701 and was crowned Asantehene. Osei Tutu held the Ashanti throne until his death in battle in 1717, and was the sixth king in Asante royal history. The Asantehene is the ruler of the Ashanti people and the Kingdom of Ashanti, historically a position of great power. The Asantehene is traditionally enthroned on a golden stool known as the Sika 'dwa, and the office is sometimes referred to by this name. The Asantehene is also the titular ruler of Kumasi, capital of Ashanti. The Asante state, or Asanteman, comprises the Ashanti region. The Ashanti Empire and Confederacy comprised part of present-day Akanland and portions of present-day eastern Côte d'Ivoire between the 17th and 20th centuries. The current Asantehene is Otumfuo Nana Osei Tutu II, born Nana Kwaku Dua, who ascended as the 16th Asante ling in April 1999. Osei Tutu II was one of seven descendants who were eligible to the heir presumptive.
