There is no general description of a queen mother. Generally, queen mothers play an important role in local government and “wield social power and influence”. The amount of power they currently hold has been diminished since pre-colonial times. Queen mothers are an important part of the Akan tradition which is based on matrilineal descent.

They are found in such groupings as the Ashanti Kingdom, which is part of the Akan ethnic group. In areas of Ghana where the Akan culture is prominent, each town has a chief and a queen mother who rule alongside the modern political system. Queen mothers have also been recorded in the tradition of the Pabir in northern Nigeria, as part of the Benin culture in Nigeria’s south, and in the Krobo area. The Yoruba people of Nigeria, Benin and Togo also have a number of women that make use of the honorific “titled mother of the king“. In other parts of Africa, such as in Uganda, the term queen mother is also used to describe either the mothers of reigning monarchs or women who hold power in their own right. As of the start of the 21st century, queen mothers are seeing a resurgence in power and influence in Africa. A great many of them are members of the African Queens and Women Cultural Leaders Network, voluntary organizations.

The title of Queen Mother is an English compound word used to collectively describe women in traditional African leadership roles. The Akan peoples use the term ohemmaa, which means “female ruler“. In the Ga tradition, they are called manye or “community mother“. In the Pabir tradition, they are known as maigira, a word that means “female monarch“. In the Benin tradition, queen mothers are known as iyobas. In the traditions of Yorubaland, a woman who is ritually invested with the title is known as an iya oba or “titled mother of the king“. The office of the queen mother is also known as the “stool“. In Ghana, queen mothers are selected from the royal family of each town and village. It is the head of the royal family and the elders who choose both the chief and the queen mother, a pair that might be related to one another. The royal families are made up of the first settlers of an area. African Queen Mother Bust Statue sizes: 7.5 inches / 19 cm x 11.5 inches / 29 cm x 22.5 inches / 57 cm.
