Rulers of Togo

An exhaustive list of recorded kings/rulers of Togo spanning from the 1500s to the 2000s. You can use filters to sort by ruling year or location. An interactive timeline of this data can be found here. The initial title of this article has been changed from “Chiefs and Rulers of Togo” to “Rulers of Togo” since this list contains kings with dedicated titles, not chiefs. Currently, the list is male-centric, but further research is needed to include women rulers.
