The real story behind the film

Dahomey was a major center of the slave trade and carried out slave raids in the surrounding areas, capturing and brutally enslaving people. In the mid-1800s, the British sent other representatives to Dahomey to persuade the then head of state – King Gezo – to abolish the slave trade, but he refused. The British imposed a naval blockade on the ports of Dahomey to force them to end the slave trade from 1851 to 1852 and in January 1852 King Ghezo finally relented, signing a treaty with the British to end the export of Dahomey slaves. . The rise of Dahomey coincided with the rise of the Atlantic slave trade and became known to Europeans as a major supplier of slaves.
