Yennenga was an African princess, who lived over 900 years ago, the daughter of Nedega, an early 12th-century king of the Dagomba Kingdom in what is now northern Ghana. She was beautiful and became a cultural icon, a woman with a strong character and an independent mind and beloved princess who from the age of 14, fought in battle for her father against the neighbouring Malinkés. Skilled with javelins, spears and bows, she was an excellent horsewoman and commanded her own battalion. Yennenga is considered by the Mossi to be the mother of their empire and many statues of her can be found in the capital city of Burkina Faso, Ouagadougou.
