HISTORY OF THE KINGDOM STATE OF N'GOYO
Ancient Royal Crown of the Kings of N'Goyo
(Hand Crafted from Copper)
The Crown of the Kingdom of N'Goyo is a part of the Royal regalia of N'Goyo Kingship. These Royal insignia representes the Kingdom itself. They were stored in a sacred shrine and used only for the installation of Kings, as such, they were unique.
No permanent regalia from any Kingdoms in the whole of Central Africa have been recovered. Hence the extraordinary historical importance of these Royal insignia.
The Royal Crown of N'Goyo was removed from the shrine of Lusunsi on July 1933 and taken to France, by Constantin Tastevin (1880-1962) a missionary belonging to the Congregation of St Esprit.
The consecrated authority of Ngoyo Kings is considered divine, not the Kings themselves. He is not born a King: he is made Royal. The leader begins as very much a human being, elected to his position by other mortals, and is then ritually transformed by investiture ceremonies into an exceptional individual capable of ruling over all.
