The idea of monarchy in Benin, that is, monarchy as a constitutional format, has not been static. Every period has contributed to this idea. What exists today as the obaship has a long and eventful history. What are the origins and consequences of kingship in Benin? What were the internal and external sources of change in the monarchical system of Benin? How has it affected the authority structure of neighbouring peoples? How valid is the claim of continuity of the Eweka dynasty from the thirteenth century?
