The Mandoung king and his 100+ wives: cooking pots

The palace of the Moundang king in Lere, Chad.

The king inherits the wives of his predecessors so the current king technically has wives who were those of his grandfather and father. All the wives have the right to live in the placae and the compound has individual chambers in mudbrick - many were empty and I was told that some of the "inherited" wives have wandered off - and are free to do so.
