Our Rulers, Past and Present.

Otumfuo Opoku Ware II, in the early days of his reign. As will be recalled, Otumfuo ruled from 1970 to 1999.
The present Juabenhene, Daasebre Otuo Serebour II, Konkorihene, at an Adaekesee durbar in Kumasi in 1991 or so. Nana, rather curiously, chose to be rather simply attired on this occasion. Nana Juabenhemaa then, Nana Akyaamaa II, was not present.

The Juabenhene, Nana Juaben Serwaa II, Ruler of Juaben in the late 195O'S and 60s. Nana almost a 1ooyrs of age, is still of an able prescence in Juaben.

The Nseniehene of Juaben, now domiciled at Koforidua ( New Juaben ), in his distinctive gold plated headgear and walking stick. 1995, in Kumase.

The Late Nana Yaw Sarpong I of New Juaben ( 1940-45). Known in private life as
Nana Kwame Gyapong, Nana, a prominent royal, slipped the bounds of this life, a
few years ago at ripe old age.
A swordbearer of Juaben. The symbol of a lion, in gold on the blade of the sword, attests to
the bravery and valiant deeds of Juaben and its Rulers. Credit: Meyerowitz
