This chapter provides a survey of Benin City and the Edo kingdom to convey some of the local means of social organisation with regard to the rural and urban areas. It underlies the importance of the institutions of the Oba of Benin, and offers a schematic outline with some suggestions as to how the Oba of Benin is situated within these localised social relations.

Keywords:   Benin City, Edo kingdom, social organisation, Oba of Benin, social relations
