Episode 14 – The Golden Stool
This episode deals with the history of the Asante kingdom which still exists to this day. According to the Asante legend, the High Priest Okomfo Anokye caused the Golden Stool to descend from the sky and land on the lap of the 1st Asante King, Osei Tutu. The Golden Stool marked the beginning of the Asante kingdom, and if the stool should ever be destroyed so would the kingdom. The British colonial invaders even fought a war with the Asante in order to gain possession of the stool in what became known as the War of the Golden Stool.
