Behanzin

Memorial in Abomey, Benin, showing King Gbehanzin.
It reads “Je n'accepterai jamais de signer aucun traité susceptible d'aliener l'independance de la terre de mes aieux”,
in english that would be: “I will never accept to sign a treaty that may affect the independence of my ancestor’s soil”
