Eulogy To The Kings of Juaben / New Juaben


Nana Kwaku Boateng I of New Juaben. Nana ruled from 1913 to 1930.




















Daasebre sitting in state with Nana Akosua Afrakoma ( the Adwamponhemaa ) who stood in for the Queen of New Juaben. The Adwampons of Juaben, are owed a great gratitude by Asanteman, owing to the great deed of one of their ancestors. For this, I am informed, Nana Adwamponhene was given the privilege of standing upon his sandals when greeting the Occupant of the Yiadom and Hwedie Akonnwakese3 ( Great Stool ).


The Ruler of New Juaben, was invited by the neighbouring state of Yilo Krobo to their annual festival.
