The Crown Jewels

In the 1930s, due to administrative re-organisation, Ibadan had the name of his ruler changed from that of Baale to Olubadan and freed itself from the control of Alaafin. What was left was for the Olubadan was to have a beaded crown, and it took another forty years of political pressure and historical revision for this to occur.
