Kwasi Bosomtwe's Relationship to Bantama Baafuor Amankwatia


Each box in the family tree includes known siblings. Thus, Afua Moku, aka Afua Fofie, a Dwaben woman who was the birth mother of Baafuor Amankwatia, first Bantamahene, as well as the wet nurse/mother (obagyegyefo) of Opemsuo Osei Tutu I, Founder of Asanteman,  had two sisters. An older sister,  whose name is not known at the moment, was the mother of Adu Gyamera, the IIIrd Bantamahene, who sided with Aberewa Poku in a well-known Asanteman succesion dispute and was consequently destooled by Okatakyie Opoku Ware I. Another sister, Akosua Akyire, who emigrated with the Kwatwoma from Suntreso to their current location in Seketia (Brong Ahafo Region) via Susuanso, essentially ended up supplying the long line of subsequent chiefs of Bantama and Awua Domase, starting with her son Apraku Panin, the 2nd Bantamahene.
