Generally, majority of the Monarch System in Nigeria is led by a male. But there are some that is overseen by their female counterparts too. This is what the Yoruba is called Regency – A female occupying a traditional seat of administration in their territories.
They are present in kings meeting at all levels from Local to the Federal level.
They play the same duties and roles a male King would do.
Some Regents stay as King for ages despite the fact that 6 months is the maximum period to stay as King.
However, while on the throne, the female isn’t allowed to get pregnant or get married if single and she would dress as a man.
