For resisting colonial rule, the British exiled these African kings to Seychelles in the 1800s


By the late 19th century, the scramble for Africa had become very intense. European colonies were not only interested in the slave trade but realized the availability of natural resources that could make their countries richer and bring world dominance.

The conquest of Africa took place between the 1820s t0 1911 in the 19th and early 20th century. The Berlin Conference of 1884 that regulated European trade in Africa led to the thirst for absolute control over Africa. By 1914, Liberia and Ethiopia were the only African counties that were not ruled by any European state.

Among all the European countries, the British had the most African states under their rule. They fought several African kingdoms, killing their rulers and weakening their armies in order to take control.

Despite the existence of several weaker kingdoms that gave in to the British Empire easily, other African states gave them a hard time. These African states were ruled by strong and courageous kings who protected their kingdoms for as long as they could. This led the British to exile many of them into Seychelles where they were left to die or live for several years by which time they had successfully taken control over their states.

Here are some African kings who were exiled by the British for refusing to allow their kingdoms to be colonised.
