«This study provides a detailed analysis of the royal slave system in Ngaoundere, situated in today’s northern Cameroon, in the period c. 1900—1960. More specifically, it focuses on the men and women in the household of the local Muslim ruler (laamiido) who were slaves or who had slave origins. Among these, the overall focus will be on two groups: The male title-holders, who played vital roles in governance and administration, and the royal concubines who carried out what has been qualified as ‘state-household reproduction’ in the secluded palace interior.»
