Title:Prempeh I in exile
Author:Boahen, A. AduISNI
Periodical:Research Review
Geographic term:Ghana
Subjects:heads of State
Ashanti polity
Abstract:The reign of Prempeh I (1888-1931) was the most tragic of any of the reigns in the history of the Asante Empire. That reign saw the last of the bitter wars between Asante and the British imperialists. The article describes what happened to Prempeh and his group during their exile on the Seychelles Islands (1900-1924). His concerns during this period were: to educate himself - to become a good christian - to promote health and welfare - to keep in touch with events in Asante - to see that healthy relations existed between the inmates of the camp and the local administration and the British Government - to see that they all were repatriated to Ghana.
