Manage episode 301071319 series 2796441
On this episode, we look at the humble beginnings of what would eventually become the Ashanti empire, including the origins of its dominant tribal family, the beginnings of Ashanti unity, and the foundation of its most important city. At this early state in the Ashanti Empire's metamorphosis, the Ashanti were still ruled by independent city states. However, one city state, Kumasi, was slowly establishing itself as the political, economic, and military hegemon of the Ashanti.
Apologies if there was anymore background noise than usual, or if there are problems related to volume. As mentioned last episode, I'm undergoing a pretty intense change in my life right now, so your support of the show, whether financially or through your patience with these changes, is greatly appreciated.
