Oyo Empire

Oyo Empire – The Empire of the Democratic Republic of the Yorùbá

Oyo Empire in its core governmental centre stretches from the border with the present-day “Benin Republic” in the West, to the River Niger in the East and North, with the now Oyo, Osun, Ekiti and Ondo Provinces, as well as Benin Empire (still currently within Nigeria) to the South.

Oyo Empire, in the height of its glory, stretched far beyond this ‘governmental centre’, attracting worldwide attention.
