7 Female Kings

A regent who serves as the female king is the daughter of the former king. As a regent, a period of six months is what is normally required to be on the throne. But some have used more than six months on the throne. According to tradition, the moment a regent ascends the throne and as long as she remains the regent, she is no longer regarded as a woman and she is expected to appear always like a man. The faces of the regents must not be covered and the beads on the neck, falling on their chest must not be more than three and graduated in three layers, although this varies in some communities.

Married regents can not engage in s3xual relationships with their husbands while in the palaces, and should not be pregnant during the period they occupy the throne. The unmarried regents are to remain single, with no sexual relationship with a man. They are generally regarded as ‘OBA’, and should behave as a male OBA should. Here areis a list of 7 regents in Nigeria.
